The Generalitat de Catalunya recognises 21 IGTP groups as Consolidated or Emerging Research Groups

Grants to support the scientific activity of research groups in Catalonia (SGR-Cat 2021)

- Institutional, Projects, Research

The Agència de Gestió d'Ajuts Universitaris i de Recerca (AGAUR) has published the final resolution of the call for grants to support the activities of research groups in universities, centres and foundations. In this year's call, 21 IGTP groups have been recognised as Consolidated or Emerging Research Groups, 7 of which will receive funding totalling €340,000.

The aim of the call is to promote the activity of research groups that strengthen the scientific, economic and social impact of research, as well as to promote their international projection. The call provides for the recognition of research groups that meet the requirements for each modality and, in some cases, the granting of funding depending on the score obtained.
