The Girona Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBGI) is a foundation whose purpose is to promote, develop, transfer, manage and disseminate research, scientific and technological knowledge, teaching and training in the areas of life and health sciences, mainly in the Girona area.
Formally constituted in 2005 the institute has its origins in the Fundacio Privada Dr. Josep Trueta (1995) and since 2008 has been a public entity, including the Generalitat into the governing bodies
The IDIBGI is structured with research groups and research personnel from the field of health and biomedical research and also of the Hospital Universitari Dr. Josep Trueta de Girona (HUJT), the Institut Català de la Salut (ICS), the Institut d'Assistència Sanitària (IAS), the Institut de Diagnòstic per la Imatge (IDI), the Institut Català d’Oncologia (ICO), the Banc de Sang i Teixits (BST), the Universitat de Girona (UdG), the Escola Universitària de la Salut i Esports (EUSES) and the Institut d'Investigació en Atenció Primària (IDIAP) Jordi Gol in Girona.
The IDIBGI facilities at the Parc Hospitalari Martí i Julià de Salt are host to part of the research laboratories and personnel who, along with the rest of the researchers from the associated institutions, form multidisciplinary teams with different expertise, focused on finding synergies and solutions to the health challenges of our environment, through translational research.
The IDIBGI's STRATEGIC PLAN 2018-2022 focuses on 3 strategic axes: the Organisational model, the Scientific model and the Relationship model, from which several strategic lines and specific actions are derived:
On the 31st of March 2015 the Girona Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBGI) received the "HR Excellence in Research Award". This award and its logo reflect the IDIBGI’s commitment to continously improve its human resources policies and practices in line with the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (Charter & Code),
The Charter and Code is addressed to researchers as well as to employers and funders in both the public and private sectors. They are key elements in the European Union's policy to make research an attractive career, which is a vital feature of its strategy to stimulate economic and employment growth.
The Girona Biomedical Research Institute endorsed the Charter and Code in May 2011, and joined the Fourth Cohort of the Institutional Human Resources Strategy Group in 2012, attending the Kick-off meeting of the group project in Brussels. Thereon the IDIBGI started implementing their own Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R).
The Girona Institute of Biomedical Research has anEquality Plan since 2014. In 2018 it was renewed to continue working against gender discrimination and guarantee maximum equality throughout the entire institution.
