The AES2019 call will be open from February 19 until March 21, 2019, and announced in the ISCIII website.

The successful applicants will be contracted during two years by the hosting IIS to carry out scientific-technical activities aimed at optimizing available technological resources and benefiting from the close collaboration with the Spanish National Bioinformatics Institute (INB), which is the ISCIII bioinformatics platform, as well as offering bioinformatics services to research groups at the IIS.

The AES is the main public funding tool for R & D & I in the field of translational research in biomedicine and promoting its research activity. The aid is promoted and managed by the Health Institute Carlos III (ISCIII), under the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities.
