The Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) and the Institute of High Energy Physics (IFAE) have both received a renewal of the Severo Ochoa award.
The Spanish Research Agency announced last week the research centres and units awarded with the Severo Ochoa and María de Maeztu accreditations. Two BIST centres, the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) and the Institute for High Energy Physics (IFAE) received a renewal of the Severo Ochoa award which will be valid for the next four years and will fund each centre with 4 million euros. The aim of the program is to promote research of excellence in Spain in all fields of science.
The other four BIST centres also hold the Severo Ochoa awards. The Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) and the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) received their award renewal last year and the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) and the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) will be up for renewal in 2018.
Congratulations to CRG and IFAE for renewing this prestigious award.
