The second call for projects in cooperation with the Department of Health and Life Sciences (CEXS) at UPF, also recognised as a María de Maeztu Unit, was launched this month and is open until 30/11.
The project will be led by two Principal Investigators, one from the DCEXS and one from the DTIC. It is mandatory that proposals are a genuine collaboration between two groups from the two departments, as the objective of this call is to create synergies and to potentiate interdisciplinary research, aligned with the strategic research programs of the María de Maeztu Units. The program is cofunded by these programs, the COFRE funds of the Department of Information and Communication Technologies, and require cofunding by the participating teams.

Both departments have active cooperation in teaching, such as the Bachelor's degree in Biomedical Engineering and the Master in Computational Biomedical Engineering.
