Until 2022, CMDS operated with funding from CEU, supplemented by external research funds awarded to the Center in accordance with CEU policies and procedures.

As of 2022, as an independent entity affiliated with CEU and University of Santiago de Compostela (USC), CMDS is financially self-sustainable. Its funding coms from two sources: foundations and philanthropies, and consultancy services to third-party clients, including regulators and private companies.

Our annual resources come in the form of in-kind support, cost sharing arrangements, multi-year externally funded research project and direct support from CEU (see list of externally funded projects 2005-present).
