Research Committee

The present and future of research at Bellvitge Hospital emanates from the strategic and organizational reformulation that took place at the center in 2009, and which has been revised in 2017 within the new Strategic Plan of the HUB.

The positioning is committed to leadership and excellence and is based on the strength of being a third-level health center, the link with the University of Barcelona, ​​and the commitment to tertiary care, innovation and training. The HUB's research strategy seeks to promote, quantitatively and qualitatively, research at the Hospital and respond to the specific needs of our professionals. With the support of IDIBELL, the HUB Research Committee through the Strategic Research Plan has promoted the creation of the Research Support Unit and the following main actions:
