Jesús Serra Foundation Visiting Researchers Programme




The IAC has been chosen by the Jesús Serra Foundation to participate in its “Visiting Researchers Programme” in the 2017, 2018 and 2019 editions. Each year, the programme supports a two or three months stay at the IAC for a few visiting professors of international prestige. These long visits allow, first, to deepen the scientific relationship between the host research group and the visiting researcher, and secondly, to initiate new lines of action based on the generation of new scientific interests.
