Research to improve people's health


L’IDIAPJGol forma parte de cuatro redes R+D+I con la ayuda del AGAUR

IDIAP Jordi Gol participates in four R+D+I networks that count on funding provided by the University and Research Grants Management Agency (AGAUR). The aid of the R+D+I Networks is intended for the creation of programs for the valorization and transfer of research results. Driven by the Department of Research and University of the Generalitat of Catalonia, the aim is to promote collaboration between the different research groups of different entities that have common challenges and objectives of economic and social interest. This work together enhances projects based on interdisciplinarity and multidisciplinarity.foto xarxes RDI

IDIAP Jordi Gol participates in four networks and in each network they are accompanied by a minimum of five research groups from at least three different participating entities and a coordinating entity. The four R+D+I networks are:

  • XARTEC: R+D+I Network in Health Technologies. The entity that coordinates the project is the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC)m with the direction and coordination of Alexandre Perera. From the IDIAP, the GRInnAPIC participates with dr. Josep Basora as IP.
  • TECSAM: The network on Innovation, research and use of technologies for mental health. The Sant Joan de Déu Foundation is the entity that coordinates the groups involved with the coordination of dr. Josep Mª Haro. The IDIAP participates through the Mental Health group with two IPs, Enric Aragonès and Maribel Fernández.
  • XARSMART: the multidisciplinary R+D+I Network for personalized precision medicine projects works with digital technologies and data science focusing on Smart Health, health products and health solutions. The Biomedical Research Institute of Bellvitge (IDIBELL) leads the groups with the coordination of Miguel Ángel Souto Mora. GRInnAPIC also participates with dr. Josep Basora as IP.
  • I4Kids: is the Pediatric Innovation Hub that has the challenge of identifying and supporting those innovation projects, within the field of pediatrics and maternity, that stand out for their ability to generate change in society and childcare. The coordination is carried out by the San Joan de Déu Hospital with the researcher Arnau Valls as the main coordinator. IDIAP participates with INFADIMED with Jordi Fernández as IP.

The AGAUR grants for these four networks cover a duration of two years, from 2023 to 2025, to carry out the different programs for the valorization and transfer of research results in each network.
