Dissemination campaign for the call for proposals in health research of “la Caixa” Foundation
The “la Caixa” Banking Foundation launched at the end of 2017 a call for proposals to finance research projects in biomedicine with a total amount of 12 million. The initiative is part of its strategy to support cutting-edge research in health sciences in all phases: from researchers training to market transfer.
In order to disseminate the new call for proposals, two informative sessions were set up in January in Barcelona and Madrid to present the grants and to address questions from the attendants. From UbiK we were responsible for defining the content of the emailing campaigns. We also made a dissemination plan and an active follow-up of the assistance to ensure researchers and managers of all relevant biomedical centres were informed.
Held at CosmoCaixa Barcelona and CaixaForum Madrid, the sessions were both a success, as will also be the call for proposals, one of the most ambitious private research funding initiatives in Europe.
