Since 2013 the Catalan Institute of Classical Archaeology (ICAC) has been part of the SUMA “R3 – Palaeoecology, Archaeology and Cultural Heritage” Programme in which the Catalan Institute of Human Palaeoecology and Social Evolution (IPHES) and the Catalan Institute of Cultural Heritage Research (ICRPC) also participate. The SUMA Programme is an initiative promoted by the Government of Catalonia with the objective of integrating the CERCA centres in order to achieve integrated structures with a greater critical mass and increased scientific and economic competitiveness.
