The IdiPAZ Internationalization Platform aims to become a fundamental tool to support IdiPAZ researchers to continue being a reference in the international arena.
The main objective is to promote internationally the different research groups of IdiPAZ, by identifying possible synergies between groups and centers, new partners and funding sources, as well as to forge strategic alliances.
Specific ojectives:
- Conduct an active monitoring international funding programs for R & D + i.
- Identifying and disseminate interesting opportunities and calls for research groups.
- Identifying and actively participate in international networks interesting for the center.
- Introducing and disseminating the capabilities of the center and its research groups.
- Identifying, defining, validating and developing project ideas that emerged in the center.
- Supporting and encouraging participation in information events.
- Organising information and training sessions on specific required areas.
- Advising on the proposal preparationg and the negotiation phase with the European Commission
Managing the approved projects.
H2020 is the leading European program for funding research and innovation projects in various subject areas. For the period 2014-2020 it accounts with a budget of nearly € 80,000m.
Most activities are implemented through competitive calls managed by the European Commission with preset priorities in work programs.
The program structure can be seen reflected in the following figure:

The Health Program of the EU is the main instrument available to the European Commission to carry out the Health Strategy of the EU. It is implemented through annual work plans, in which the criteria and funding priorities are established.
The total budget of the third program is 449.4 million euros for the period 2014-2020.
COST is the first and widest European intergovernmental framework for transnational Cooperation in Science and Technology.
Its aim is to enable break-through scientific developments leading to new concepts and products and thereby contributes to strengthen Europe’s research and innovation capacities. These networks, COST Actions, represent the main instrument available to the program for its implementation.
The calls are continuously open with two court dates per year.
