The Girona branch of the Official College of Psychology of Catalonia (COPC) has signed an agreement this week to support the Biomedical Research Institute of Girona Dr. Josep Trueta (IDIBGI). This agreement aims to consolidate the long-standing collaboration between the COPC of Girona and the Girona biomedical research centre.
"The collaboration between the COPC and a research institute such as IDIBGI is essential to create a link between clinical practice and the world of research," says Francesc Molinero Ruiz, president of the Governing Board of the Girona Delegation of the COPC. Molinero adds: "Academic institutions are often far removed from professional practice, and professional practice is sometimes also far removed from the latest scientific advances. Creating a link between both worlds seems very important to us in order to improve professional practice".
