International partnerships


Scientific institutes need to be tightly linked to the wider research community and IRB Barcelona has numerous initiatives to ensure that our researchers establish fruitful collaborations with other scientists, research facilities and hospitals. Our collaborations go beyond borders, with formal links to institutes with similar areas of activity and interests worldwide. These partnerships allow for the exchange of knowledge and expertise, and provide an important chance for research from each institute to spend periods of time at other centres.
