We want to promote collaborations to consolidate our research

That is why we have established different alternatives for people to collaborate with our research work, around our four lines of research and our longitudinal study.

There are 9 forms of collaboration with MICARE:

In the case of senior, adjunct, young researchers or collaborators, the collaboration is carried out through an invitation from one or more associate researchers of the Institute, or by the MICARE Executive Team.

For the roles of collaborating entity, spokespersons, post-doctorates, graduate and undergraduate students, the collaboration can be through open calls or invitations from our associate researchers or by the Executive Team.
