  • 73rd ICREA Colloquium - Managing an ERC grant, or how to prevent a research dream to become an administrative nightmare

     

    Speakers: Prof. Victoria Reyes (ICREA at ICTA-UAB) and Prof. Iñaki Ruiz (ICREA at CSIC-IBE)

    When: 20th of December 2016 at 6pm

    Where: ICREA, Pg. Lluís Companys 23, 6th floor

     

    Abstracts:

    ​Victoria Reyes

    The European Research Council (ERC) provides funding opportunities for innovative, groundbreaking ideas at the frontier of science. Moreover, ERC encourages high-risk research, which often implies the use of unconventional methodologies and approaches. A researcher obtaining an ERC research grant might find that the administrative rules at the host institution do not easily allow the execution of a risky research program, a situation that might jeopardize the innovative nature of the research.  Based on the management of an ERC Starting Grant, in this presentation I explore ways in which the researcher can negotiate a more flexible management so to ensure the successful execution of the grant.

     

    Iñaki Ruiz Trillo

    I will quickly present my experience in managing an ERC grant in two different host institutions (UB and UPF), and my negotiations with a third one (CSIC). I think the most important point to avoid problems is to have a good communication channel with both the administration at your institution and with the ERC officer.

    The ICREA colloquia are a great way to learn about remote fields of research from our best experts. We usually have two speakers, who offer their opinions on the same subject from very different angles. Open to all ICREAs and their guests. There’s wine and munchies at the end, please book in advance!

  • 74th ICREA Colloquium - Autoimmunity meets neurodegeneration: different pathways for similar brain dysfunctions

     

    Speakers: Prof. Miquel Vila (VHIR) and Prof. Josep Dalmau (IDIBAPS)

    When: 31st January 2017, 18:00h

    Where: ICREA, Pg. Lluís Companys 23, 6th floor

     Abstract:

     Studies during the last 10 years have revealed a new category of brain diseases in which crucial neuronal receptors are attacked by autoantibodies. As a result of this attack there is a reduction of the target synaptic proteins leading to alterations in synaptic transmission. The clinical manifestations vary according to the receptor involved, and may resemble many of the symptoms caused by neurodegenerative diseases in which specific receptors are involved, including among others Parkinson, epilepsy, chronically progressive sleep disease, or schizophrenia.

  • ICREA-FIJC Conference "Across Tumour Heterogeneity and Evolution in Cancer: From in Silico Studies to Clinical Impact"

     

    ICREA Conference Awards are specific, dedicated awards aimed at funding scientific events of the hottest, most advanced topics in research of all disciplines. ICREA Research Professors make their proposals for funding and a board of external advisors ranks them and grants the awards.

    The 2016 edition of the ICA has gone to http://www.icreafijcconference.com/ after fierce competition and a lot of debate of the jury. The conference will be held on Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th of March 2017.
