16th edition – Calella, May 12-13, 2022
Carrer de Sant Jaume, 209
If drawing up a research project to obtain funds used to be an important part in the career of all scientists, in view of today’s economical situation, this process has become essential. The Esteve Foundation therefore decided to organize a new course addressed to future health science researchers, to learn the techniques and basic skills to apply for research projects from funding agencies and other institutions.
Four specialists in preventive medicine and public health, who have participated in a number of research projects, showed around thirty students the keys to draw up a good project. The course took place on 12 and 13 May 2022 in collaboration with Corporació de Salut del Maresme i La Selva, during which the participants learnt about the different types of projects, the different sources of funding and how to approach them.
Teresa Ruiz Cantero, Professor of Preventive Medicine and Public Health and coordinator of the course, explained “whoever takes on the task of drawing up a project to obtain funds for research, has to control many aspects, from the bibliographic revision to the declaration of new and attractive hypothesis, along with developing a work plan and a realistic costs estimate”.
Fellow lecturers were Elena Ronda, Professor of Preventive Medicine and Public Health of Universidad de Alicante, Blanca Lumbreras, Professor of Preventive Medicine and Public Health of Universidad Miguel Hernández, and Carlos Álvarez Dardet, Professor of Preventive Medicine and Public Health.
Online reservations are not available for this event.
