I + D + I projects Strategic lines - MICINN

Closing dates:

Theme: Financing industrial research projects in collaboration between companies and research organizations. The objective is to respond to the challenges identified in thematic priorities through the financing of inter and multidisciplinary projects in which scientific cooperation is constitutive and the overlap between disciplines is valued at a methodological, conceptual and theoretical level. The projects must be included in one of the 23 thematic lines. In the health area, the following stand out:

  • New biofabrication strategies: from organs on a chip, organoids or 3D bioprinting, to clinical application.
  • Nanomaterials and nanotechnology for the diagnosis of human diseases.
  • New approaches to understand the mechanisms and establish new strategies for solid tumor cancer immunotherapy.
  • Innovative approaches to improve understanding and identification of novel therapeutic targets for arteriosclerosis.
