Daniel Bravo Grants
The Daniel Bravo Andreu Private Foundation annually awards the Daniel Bravo grants for short stays abroad with the objective of stimulating high-impact biomedical research in Catalonia.
The grants are intended for researchers who perform basic and clinical research in Catalonia so that they can do three to nine month stays in international reference centres in their field, especially for cardiovascular and non-invasive diagnostic techniques. Each grant has a gross economic allowance of 3,000 Euro per month, plus travel costs.
The selection of the proposals is done using a thorough evaluation process which apart from the scientific quality of the proposed research and the trajectory of the applicant, takes into account if it will generate academic, clinical and social impact.
