The first part of the above-mentioned strategy contains a definition of each broad stage and details on the different possible positions at IDIBAPS that can be attributed to every stage. The second text part is about promotion (how to move from one stage to the next one) and follow-up for those IDIBAPS funded positions that are permanent.
