Almost fifty applications for grants and research grants

The call for training and research grants for new research personnel for 2011 led to 35 applications: 14 from the UAB, 11 from the UB, 4 from the URV, 3 from the UPF, 3 from the UPC and 1 from the UdLl. This grants programme, financed by the ICIP and managed by AGAUR, will receive one hundred thousand euros every year. The recipients are new researchers taking a master's degree and wishing to undertake a doctorate project that falls within the ICIP's areas of interest. The grants programme for peace research work, for specific projects, received 12 applications in the 2011 round.

The decision of the selection committees will be announced in December.
