Daniel Bravo Grants
The Daniel Bravo Andreu Private Foundation has opened its 2020 call for grants for short stays abroad in biomedical research with the aim of stimulating high-impact research in Catalonia.
In addition to basic and clinical cardiovascular research, the Daniel Bravo Grants focus special attention on cardiovascular imaging and non-invasive diagnostic techniques.
When assessing the proposals, three broad areas of impact have been defined:
• Academic impact: generate knowledge that will be published in high-impact journals and/or will generate capacity for future research by providing the home institutions with direction, priorities or skills.
• Clinical impact: generate knowledge that can influence clinical practice guidelines and/or improve medical and healthcare practice at the local level.
• Social impact: generate knowledge that can influence public health policies and/or offer benefits for healthcare systems, such as enhancing efficiency or maximising resources.
For: researchers at public universities, hospitals and research centres with a doctorate, bachelor’s degree or equivalent who carry out their activity in Catalonia.
Destination country: leading centres in their field in North America or Europe.
Duration of the grant: minimum 3 months and maximum 9 months.
What it includes: each grant comes with a €3,000 gross monthly stipend, in addition to travel expenses. Grant recipients will use these funds to pay for their stay, medical insurance and living expenses during the grant period.
Number of grants offered: 3
