Facts and Figures
The first set of indicators is related with the human resources. The total number of integrated researchers is consistently increasing since 2008, starting from 33 in 2008 to 50 in 2012.

The total accumulated number of PhDs has reached 76 in the period between 2008 and 2012. This represents an average of almost 15 concluded PhD-theses per year, corresponding to about 0.4 concluded PhD-supervision per integrated member, which is clearly above the national average.

Publications include 263 peer-reviewed papers in Journals and 624 at international conferences (in the 5-year period 2008-2012), and more than 22 scientific books and 100 book chapters. It should also be stressed, for example, the consistently growing number of publications in peer-reviewed journals, from 27 in 2008 to 74 in 2012. Both, in 2012 and 2013, CTS reached the ratio of 1.5 publications in peer reviewed journals per integrated member (holding a PhD degree).

In terms of scientific impact, it worth to refer that, the total and accumulated number of citations of all papers (with CTS affiliation) and for all integrated members exceeds 30000 (source: Google-scholar in Dec. 2013 - rough estimation), growing at an average rate of about 4000 citations per year.

In the period 2008-2012, CTS was involved in more than 118 financed projects both, national (42), and international (44), complemented by projects with industry (14) and external services (18). This is demonstrated by the successful completion of the projects and by the achievement of 16 patents.

Besides the published works, the research effort produces, in average, 9 models per year and 19 prototypes per year. In the particular case of integrated-circuit (IC) prototypes, CTS is proud to claim that, due to the innovative circuit and system-level techniques together with an in-house systematic design methodology, the level of 95% of first-silicon-right ICs has been reached.
