Ministry of Economía y Competitividad

IDIBAPS is fully involved in the new Spanish cooperative research structure: CIBERs, RETICs and CAIBER

The Ministry of Economía y Competitividad and the Carlos III Health Institute (ISCIII) promote health research. Its actions are focused on developing its own research programmes and organisational aspects of the research structure in Spain. IDIBAPS obtains a considerable level of financial resources through its competitive tenders.

In addition to traditional initiatives such as projects financed through the ISCIII's Strategic action in health, the Ministry focuses much of its effort on strengthening National Research Networks. The CIBERs, RETICs and CAIBER are a new way of understanding cooperative biomedical research that has given excellent results during recent years. IDIBAPS participates in most of these virtual research structures and leads some of them that are listed below.

IDIBAPS receives funding from the European Regional Development Fund. The ERDF granted to IDIBAPS have made possible the acquisition of new scientific equipment for IDIBAPS' laboratories in the CEK building, and have co-funded specific research projects.Below is a list of the research projects financed by the European Commission in which we participate:
