Jesús Serra Foundation visitors
The IAC has been chosen by the Jesús Serra Foundation to participate in its “Visiting Researchers Programme”. The new period includes 2020-2022. Each year, the programme supports stay of one - three months at the IAC for visiting professors of international prestige. These visits allow, first, to deepen the scientific relationship between the host research group and the visiting researcher, and secondly, to initiate new lines of action based on the generation of new scientific interests.
The funding scheme offered by the Jesus Serra Foundation consists of: maximum funding of 3000 euros /month. This scheme will accommodate to the standard rules of the IAC for "Bolsas de Viaje para Visitantes".
In any case diets to be claimed shall refer to those in force in national territory according to Royal Decree 462/2002. According to this Royal Decree, the visiting researcher with a longer stay of 1 month, could be reimbursed with up to 80% of the maximum per diem, i.e 2400 €/month for accommodation & subsistence, not being necessary invoices related to such concepts.
