Within the framework of its 2016 - 2019 Strategic Plan, for the coming academic year ”la Caixa” Foundation is to start up a new international doctoral grant programme with the support of the European Commission.
Through the COFUND action by the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme, the European Commission supports the best European mobility grant programmes with the aim of giving training an international, cross-sector dimension and promoting professional development in the research field.
The INPhINIT programme of grants by ”la Caixa” plans to award 42 three-year grants a year per round of applications, representing an investment of nearly 6.5 million euros in each round.
For Isidre Fainé, President of ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation, “Support for training through grants has always been a priority for our organisation. The assistance of the European Commission in this programme is, as well as a responsibility, a stimulus of the first order to continue on this path."

INPhINIT grants are open to the best international researchers to pursue doctoral projects at research centres of excellence around Spain.


The new project will invite applications for 57 annual grants in the academic years 2017 and 2018, and ”la Caixa” will be adding its own investment of 6.5 million euros per round of applications to this scheme.


For the first time, the European Commission is to cofinance a project organised by ”la Caixa” Foundation. Its contribution of 4.7 million to the new programme recognises over three decades in which ”la Caixa” has awarded grants.


For Isidre Fainé, President of ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation, “Support for training through grants has always been a priority for our organisation. The assistance of the European Commission in this programme is, as well as a responsibility, a stimulus of the first order to continue on this path."
