Research to improve people's health


Learn about the experience of our researchers abroad

Stays in research centers in other countries are a valuable experience for those of us dedicated to research. An opportunity to learn, to grow personally and professionally, to see other ways of working and to network with top international experts.


The IDIAPJGol and the ICS contribute to its funding through the Grants for a Stay at Foreign or State Research Centers, which we have awarded this year in its 18th call.

Below, six of our researchers explain in first person what it was like and what their experience brought them:
