Subsidies and awards
Barcelona Science and Universities aims to contribute to the growth of the scientific ecosystem of the city of Barcelona through funding programmes in the fields of research, scientific dissemination, knowledge transfer and the intersection between art and science.
In the field of research, Barcelona Science and Universities promotes two calls for proposals: Research and Innovation, in collaboration with the "la Caixa" Foundation, which aims to generate research on the urban challenges facing the city of Barcelona and propose innovative solutions that can help design municipal public policies, and Young and Emerging Research, which seeks to consolidate scientific careers among people who are starting their careers in the field of research.
In addition, Barcelona Science and Universities promotes the Science and Universities Y line of the General Call for Subsidies, which is divided into four funding modalities: one for congresses and events, another for scientific dissemination and communication, a third for the intersection between art and science, and a final one for citizen science.
Finally, through Barcelona Science and Universities, support is given to other calls related to art and science, such as the Barcelona Crea Subsidies, as well as programmes for knowledge transfer and innovation, such as the Bcn Health Booster and The Proactive City.
