Research Projects

IMDEA Networks Institute receives funding to develop its research activities from varied sources. There are two main categories of external funding:

Funding of individual researchers

Individual researchers receive funding in the form of grants, scholarships and fellowships from international, national or regional funds. At present several of our researchers are proud awardees of ERC Grants, “MARIE CURIE” Intra-European Fellowships (IEF) for Career Development, “MARIE CURIE” Amarout Europe Programme Fellowships, "Ramón y Cajal" grants, FPU scholarships and I3 subventions. (See details on our Awards/Funding Awards section).

Externally-funded research projects, attracting European Union, National or Regional funds

Externally-funded research projects enable us to collaborate with researchers from other organizations and backgrounds. Research funding is awarded following an open competitive selection process in which project proposals, and the private or public sector organizations presenting them, are subject to rigorous scrutiny. Such thoroughness helps to ensure that research undertaken with those funds is relevant, well-managed and with high probabilities of success in achieving its stated goals.
