The National Scientific and Technical Research Council (Spanish: Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas, CONICET) is an Argentine government agency which directs and co-ordinates most of the scientific and technical research done in universities and institutes.

First, CONICET gives grants for collective work to research teams of well-recognized scientists of every discipline (including social sciences and humanities). Secondly, it has a roll of 6,500 researches and 2,500 technicians as employees in different categories, from "investigador asistente" to "investigador principal".
