The Spanish node of EATRIS is under the umbrella and coordination of the National Institute of Health Carlos III (ISCIII), as mandated official representative of Spain in EATRIS, and the Vall d’Hebron Institute of Research Institute (VHIR), Barcelona, as scientific leadership.


Spain participates with 15 translational accredited health research institutes whose added value is the creation of knowledge in the field of health research. This knowledge stems from within the most prominent Spanish hospitals which have access to first-hand clinical expertise and constitute the perfect environment for the translation of biomedical knowledge to the clinical practice and therefore to the patient (and vice-versa).
