CNB CSIC 2022 grants project

Grants project with the CNB-CSIC

The Spanish National Centre for Biotechnology and Fundación Jesús Serra present the new call for grants for CNB research groups

The collaboration between Fundación Jesús Serra of Grupo Catalana Occidente and the Spanish National Centre for Biotechnology (CNB-CSIC) began in 2019 with its direct support for research projects on COVID-19 related topics. This is the framework for a new initiative by the Foundation to continue its support for research and the values it represents, funding several scientific projects in the CNB, in accordance with an agreement signed between the FJS and the CSIC in December 2021.

This new call is a demonstration of the Foundation's interest in continuing to contribute to the development of research carried out at the CNB. The call includes two types, both aimed at young researchers, on the one hand, a project for a doctoral thesis in the CNB will be financed, and on the other, grants will be offered for the financing of up to four emerging groups from the centre. 

The Spanish National Centre for Biotechnology (CNB) is a research centre that forms part of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), and it stands out for its versatile and interdisciplinary research, combining molecular biology techniques with the latest technologies in the field of functional and structural biology.

The CNB aims to acquire knowledge and develop new technologies in the areas of human and animal health, agriculture, microbiology and the environment; transfering the scientific advances to benefit our society, train future generations of researchers and technologists and inform and share with society the advances and benefits of Biotechnology.

On 24 October, a meeting took place between the scholarship holders.
