On 19 November, the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and the Biopol Consortium from Hospitalet de Llobregat (Barcelona) signed a framework collaboration agreement. This agreement will allow for the integration of CSIC research groups into the Biopol’H space and will facilitate construction of a new building to house the Barcelona Biomedical Research Institute (IIBB).

President of the Government of Catalonia, José Montilla, presided over the event in which the president of the Biopol’H Governing Council and minister of Health, Marina Geli, and president of the CSIC, Rafael Rodrigo, signed the agreement. Mayor of l’Hospitalet, Núria Marín, was also in attendance.

All those involved agree that joining forces is vital to moving forward with a project like Biopol’H, pointing out that this collaboration with the CSIC is an essential part of making it a benchmark project in Catalonia and the Mediterranean region.

There are 2,200 people employed in the 123 CSIC centers in Catalonia, one fourth of which work in the biomedical sector.
