These are the day-to-day challenges and the objectives that we work towards:
- Accreditation: one of the principal objectives of the IISPV is to be an institution with the characteristics and sufficient benefits to be able to achieve accreditation from the l'Instituto de Salud Carlos III (ISCIII) as a ‘Health Research Institute’.
- Excellence: another of the fundamental objectives of the IISPV is the promotion of excellence in biomedical research in the strategic fields that have been defined both in terms of the production and the exchange of ideas.
- Reference: the IISPV is currently a reference institution in biomedical research in the counties of Tarragona and Terres de l’Ebre. However, this does not need to be an end in itself, but rather that we can become a reference centre internationally.
- Internationalization: many groups within the IISPV have an international profile through publications that they make. It is necessary, however, to strengthen that recognition and international participation by research activity in clinical trials, competitive projects, and publications in high impact journals and international clinical guides.
