IDIBAPS is a public research centre that includes a hospital, an university, and a research institute. IDIBAPS aims to increase its scientific production and quality by strengthening its existing research programs through the proposed BIOTRACK Project. It is a good opportunity to enlarge existing schemes and offer better conditions for the fellows to make IDIBAPS more attractive for the most promising researchers. The Post-Doctoral Program is an In-coming mobility action that will be reinforced by BIOTRACK opening up to more places a year. IDIBAPS receives post-doctoral students for three year placements to train and develop their careers; whist at the same time their work and talent reward the centre. Through the Extramural Sabbatical Program IDIBAPS encourages Out-going mobility for PhD physicians of the hospital to do a research stage of maximum one year in a foreign center. BIOTRACK opens this scheme up to professional researchers too. Improving knowledge in new methodologies, future application in the hospital in order to increase the quality of medical health care and continuous incentive of the professionals are the main results of this initiative. The Recruitment-Reintegration Programs are programs co-funded by the government. Long-term careers in the center managing new research lines are offered to highly qualified researchers that are successful in these calls. BIOTRACK improves the start-up funds offered, thus making IDIBAPS an even more attractive choice. The combined impacts of these three programs help IDIBAPS to achieve its overall goal of becoming a European center of excellence in biomedical research.
