Building BIST as a stimulating and supportive working environment

We aim to attract, retain, and develop the brightest researchers and professionals by providing career development activities that meet their needs at all stages of their professional growth.

BIST understands the need to support the different professional careers to help its teams reach a level of international excellence. We follow the recommendations of the European Charter for Researchers and code of conduct assuming that mobility is inherent in a research career. We are therefore empowering our researchers with the capacities that enable them to work with other research centers in different cultural environments, and to address projects that combine different disciplines or explore business development opportunities related to their research results. We are committed to a global citizen, a global researcher.

To achieve these goals we have developed activities oriented to:

• Mentoring the careers of our researchers
• Making our researchers active participants of the BIST community
• Improving the skills and abilities of our scientists
• Creating an innovative and permeable relationship with the industrial sector

Specifically, BIST supports the talent activities of our six research centres (CRG, ICFO, ICIQ, ICN2, IFAE, and IRB Barcelona) and also provides additional resources to the members of the BIST community such as a full membership to VITAE, a platform for supporting the professional development of researchers.

Some of the BIST talent activities include:
