ERLab, research in emergency medicine

We are currently the only research group linked to emergency pathology research in Catalonia and the rest of the country. We have established three research areas. An area of Clinical Emergency Research; an area of Social Emergency Research, and an area of Climate Emergency and Public Health Research.

Ours is a group made up of professionals with a great dedication to healthcare, which is why the COVID-19 pandemic has meant that our tasks have been greatly reorganised, even so, we have been able to carry out research and publish the results of our work. And over the years of the group's trajectory, we have been awarded various competitive projects.

During this period we have also established working alliances with other research groups and health entities, such as the Chair of Social Innovation of the University of Lleida, the Medical Emergency System and the Galatea Foundation.
