DESCUBRE PROGRAMME

JULY 1 TO 19, 2019

With the Discover Program, the Príncipe Felipe Research Center (CIPF) is aiming to bring biomedical research into the lives of young people. We want to encourage them to choose scientific careers in Valencia which we hope will help create home-grown researchers of excellence.

The programme is aimed at secondary school students in their first or second year of the Baccalaureate or equivalent courses related to biology and health sciences.

The Discover program training will take place at the CIPF facilities from July 1 to 19, 2019.
