GENIL Strengthening through Short Visits (GENIL- SSV 2015)

This program supports short visits between min 5 and max 15 days for foreign world-leading researchers to visit a Host Researcher at the Granada Excellence Network of Innovation Laboratories (GENIL). Research collaborations are expected to be defined during the short visit and continued afterwards. Note that all the potential Guests must have a continued scientific collaboration within the period 2009-2014 including JCR publications, participation in research projects, consolidated transfer activities, etc.


GENIL is a high-competitive project of the University of Granada (UGR) funded by the Campus of International Excellence BioTic GRANADA. GENIL Project is an umbrella organization for cross-talk activities of three high quality research institutes: The Research Center on Information and Communication Technology (CITIC-UGR), the University of Granada node of the Spanish Institute of Mathematics (IEMath-GR) and the Institute “Carlos I” for Computational and Theoretical Physics (iC1).
