IMIBIC-MIP in a nutshell

The first edition of this event will bring together postdoctoral researchers from around the world and IMIBIC researchers.

During the session for scientific talks and networking, the invited postdocs will present their lines of research, have a chance to interact with IMIBIC researchers, and learn more about IMIBIC and its activities.

The objective is to create a venue for postdoctoral researchers who work outside Spain to make themselves known, present their current work, and explore new collaborations with IMIBIC research groups. This will facilitate the creation of new networks, joint projects and grant applications at an international level, as well as may promote the attraction of talent to IMIBIC and Spain.
