The Interdisciplinary Research Structure for Reading was created in the University of Valencia to promote research in reading and to disseminate the results of the research groups that are part of it. It consists of renowned researchers from the universities of Valencia, Salamanca, Oviedo, Basque Country, Zaragoza and Barcelona. It has developed technological products to research, evaluate and improve reading skills.

  • Reading processes in alphabetic and non-alphabetic languages
  • Reading in people with disabilities
  • Dyslexia
  • Neuropsychology of reading
  • Reading in technological environments
  • Promoting reading through Web 2.0
  • Teaching reading skills

The Interdisciplinary Research Structure for Reading promotes the Doctoral Studies in Text Reading and Comprehension in the universities of Salamanca, Oviedo and Valencia. It collaborates with institutions, organisations and companies dedicated to reading.
