The Severo Ochoa IMPULSE Visitor Program is aimed at scientists in Spain who do not have access to the Core Technologies, Scientific Resources and Business and Development capacities available at the CRG, and who are interested in leveraging these capacities for their projects. Applicants will be hosted by CRG groups or Core Technology units and will integrate into the host group activities.
- Participation in CRG Program Data Clubs, seminars and retreats.
- Access to internal training (https://www.crg.eu/en/content/training).
- Core Technologies at internal prices (https://www.crg.eu/en/content/scientific-services/core-technologies).
- Budget up to 15.000 € for each application, to cover the following cost categories:
- Costs to help develop the scientific project.
- Costs to help cover return ticket.
- Costs to help cover accommodation.
The IMPULSE Visitor Program is open to scientists that come from research centres, universities and hospitals based in Spain that do not belong to Severo Ochoa Centres or Maria de Maeztu Units of Excellence.
Researchers working on computational and/or mathematical modelling have the opportunity to stay at the Barcelona Collaboratorium, an initiative from CRG and EMBL, to collaborate with other research fellows on predictive biology. For more information see website.
Scientists can be Principal Investigators (PIs), postdocs or experienced (3-4 year) PhD students, including awardees of Ramón y Cajal and Miguel Servet Programs. PIs must have at least one active grant, and may come accompanied by 1-2 students/postdocs.
The Impulse Visitor Programme supports stays of 1 to 6 months during the time-frame of the Severo Ochoa Award (2022-2026).
