Celebrating 20 year anniversary of IDIBAPS

IDIBAPS celebrates its 20th anniversary on July 2016. Several activities are being organized to commemorate this anniversary in which the research community and, also, the society are invited to participate.

The celebration will start with the conference “European Research Council: an opportunity” presented by Professor Andreu Mas-Colell from the University Pompeu Fabra (UPF). This event will take place on May 30 at 15:30h at the Esteve Auditorium at the Esther Koplowitz Center (CEK). The conference is expected to encourage IDIBAPS researchers who have a track record of excellent research and a project that can represent an important advance in their field of knowledge, to apply to an European Research Council (ERC) grant.

Professor Mas-Colell is one of the most internationally renowned Catalan economists. His career includes experience as the Secretary General of the ERC (July 2009-August 2010). He was Minister of Economy and Knowledge of the Government of Catalonia and from this period several merits are recognized such as the creation of the Catalan Institution for Research and Advanced Studies (CREA) to draw talent to Catalonia.
