Our aim:

The Basque Government has promoted Ikerbasque to contribute to the development of scientific research by attracting top researchers and restoring talent. Ikerbasque currently employs 142 senior researchers from 26 countries. These are researchers from all over the world, from all fields of knowledge, with a positive trajectory and leadership capabilities. Likewise, we employ 59 young researchers with promising scientific careers.

Last year, our researchers published 837 articles in indexed journals and are leading 11 ERC Grants, the most prestigious grants in Europe which favour ambitious research projects that push the boundaries of knowledge. Also in 2015, Ikerbasque researchers obtained 24€ million for research projects. These resources are used to foster research in Euskadi by hiring researchers of all levels and investing in equipment and infrastructures – specifically, 580 people are working in research groups led by Ikerbasque researchers.
