The Institute of Biomedical Research of Lleida (IRBLleida) has opened the ninth call for grants for the Promotion of Health Research. The Diputació de Lleida finances this aid, which this year changes its name to 'Aids for Talent in Biomedical Research', with 279,300 €. For the first time, this call includes a category of initiation in research, funded by IRBLleida, for people who have completed a bachelor's and master's degree and have been accepted by a research group attached to IRBLleida. The category created in 2020 to promote research by professionals at health centres in the Alt Pirineu-Aran Health Region is also maintained.
In total, 11 one-year grants have been announced for the incorporation of research professionals in training. The call is divided into five different categories, all with one grant per category, except category D, for the completion of doctoral theses, which has 7 grants. The grants will have a maximum duration of one year and will consist, each one, of an amount of €20,000 gross per year, intended to cover the remuneration of the beneficiary. Lleida Provincial Council also covers the total cost of each of the contracts.
Category A, postresidency aid for dedication to research, is an aid for the incorporation of professionals with specialised health training to develop or participate in a health research project within the framework of a research group attached to the IRBLleida.
