BIOCAPS OBJECTIVES

BIOCAPS’ mission is to enhance the Biomedical Research in Vigo

To accomplish this goal the project will focus on various actions:

1. - TALENT

Recruitment of experienced researchers and managers

Recruitment of senior researchers and highly qualified technical staff to improve the project developed within the IBIV, in both quantitative and qualitative terms.

2. - TWINNING ACTIVITIES

European Partnering Centres

Twining activities will aim to stimulate and encourage scientific collaboration with top-level research entities. This will lead to the strengthening of links and alliances with specific top-level centres, culminating in active cooperation.

3. - NEW INFRASTRUCTURE

Research equipment

Acquisition of new equipment that will permit the IBIV to carry out state-of-the-art techniques to improve research results.

4.-APPLICATION

Technology Transfer and Innovation

The transfer of technology and innovation will allow institutes to exploit research results through their application and/or commercialization. In turn, this will promote the culture of innovation, as well as the creation of networks with partnering entities for co-exploitation of results.

5. - VISIBILITY

Dissemination and promotional activities

These activities will increase the excellence and visibility of the IBIV. Training in science and innovation for researchers, technicians and managers of the IBIV will take place through the collaboration with the European Partnering Research Centres and several Innovative institutions.

The IBIV will contribute to regional socio-economic development by enhancing its research capacity and boosting its international visibility.
