Beyond GoHero: we remain committed to the internationalization of biomedical research

At the IISPV we continue to attract international professional talent.

The Pere Virgili Health Research Institute (IISPV), the Girona Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBGI) and the Lleida Biomedical Research Institute (IRBLleida) continue to collaborate so that the research and studies we lead have a projection beyond our territory and can receive funding from international organizations.

That the research led in the field of biomedicine has an international projection is key so that the projects and studies led in this field can improve the health of many more people and can receive funding from entities outside our country. With a view to enhancing this aspect, in 2017, IISPV, IDIBGI and IRBLleida signed a collaboration agreement, which crystallized in the GoHero project (responds to the Health European Research Offices acronym) . This initiative was made possible thanks to the funding received within the framework of the Strategic Plan for Research and Innovation in Health (PERIS), granted by the Department of Health of the Generalitat de Catalunya and whose aim was to encourage our research to reach a projection international.

Despite having finished this project, we have decided to continue working together (within the framework of another initiative, which we have named Beyond GoHero), so that our research continues to cross borders and, in addition, to do it all by enhancing the innovation and to make them more inclusive.

In this sense, BeyondGoHero aims not only to give an impetus to the internationalization of the biomedical research of these 3 institutes, but also to do so by incorporating both the gender dimension and the patient’s perspective into its projects and studies. To implement this last perspective, we design our research in the working framework of what is known as Citizen Science, which at the same time guarantees open access to the results obtained.
