One of the main challenges facing CAPCIT is to firmly establish itself as a body of the Parliament par excellence. The regularity of the institution´s meetings and the number of issues it deals with will depend primarily on the interest shown by the bodies and the members of the Parliament. Therefore it is a constant challenge for CAPCIT to maintain a high level of familiarity among MPs and to increase their interest in CAPCIT´s work. This is especially important in the period after an election, because new MP´s have to be familiarized with CAPCIT and its work. Another of the challenges facing CAPCIT is to set out a clearer definition of the role to be played by Catalan scientific and technical institutions in its meetings and in the preparation of the reports they draw up. One of the perceived strengths is for the various institutions to provide their opinion on the topics to be addressed; even so, when it comes to choosing the working issues it should not be overlooked that the decision-making must be conducted from a political standpoint to a certain degree.
