The seventh partnership meeting of Refbio II was held in Logroño on December 19.
The managers of the different centres met at the headquarters of Fundación Rioja Salud to assess the state of the Network and propose the actions to be taken in its final stretch.
The team carried out the timely follow-up of the various actions underway such as economic management and coordination, communication, research projects, transfer and exploitation of results and collaborations between centres (training sessions).
This last activity will finally be fully developed in the first semester of 2019, period of extension of Refbio II granted and ratified by POCTEFA in December 2018. In this way, doctoral students belonging to the different partner centres of the project will be able to enjoy training stays in companies for a minimum of three months (activity validated by ANECA as international mobility within the Doctoral Programme).
