The amount of each grant is 4.000 €, with the corresponding tax deductions. The grant will be divided into three installments: the first when the grant is awarded; the second, when a part of the work is presented; and, the third, upon completion of the project.

  • The deadline of project submissions is April 30 of each year.
  • The review committee is composed of members of the Institut, specialists in bioethics who will base their decision on the project’s contribution to knowledge, innovative potential, methodology, etc.
