Supporting the excellence of outstanding students


The newspaper “El Periódico de Catalunya” has echoed the award ceremony of the 77 grants given by the “Obra Social La Caixa” foundation to support doctoral students. This grant programme aims to retain Spanish students and attract international students with talent for research, both for Spanish universities and Severo Ochoa centres. In this edition, IRB Barcelona students Jürgen Walther, Craig Donoghue, Elzbieta Szulc, and Lada Murcia received these awards.
