Subsidies for research and innovation projects in collaboration with the "la Caixa" Foundation
Barcelona City Council, in collaboration with the "la Caixa" Foundation, promotes a biannual line of subsidies for research and innovation projects, the aim of which is to address the challenges facing the city of Barcelona. This initiative seeks to foster collaboration between research centres, third sector organisations and the city's economic fabric to develop research in areas such as community health, the digitalisation of the city, ageing, quality of life and climate emergency.
Through this line of grants, the aim is to inform future policy decisions to improve the quality of life of citizens and build a more sustainable and inclusive city. In addition, it aims to promote open access and the dissemination of research results to the public for an effective transfer of the knowledge generated and to contribute to the scientific culture of citizens.
In the 2023 call, projects must be based on research into urban challenges that can be encompassed within one of these themes:
- Community health.
- Sustainability and climate change.
