Proa Comunicación has once again successfully organized the XIV Scientific Conference of the Alicia Koplowitz Foundation held on October 24 and 25 at Mutua Madrileña. Conference attendance as well as media coverage has been even more excellent this edition. During the last day, Alicia Koplowitz, president of the foundation, a total amount of 400,000 euros in aid to eight research projects concerning children and adolescents’ psychiatry and neurosciences and neuropediatrics.
In this year’s edition, 74 research projects opted for grants, of which 42 were from Psychiatry, 21 from Neurosciences and 11 from Neuropediatrics. Three External Evaluation Courts were responsible for examining them and making the selection. The Research Aid is aimed at teams that develop their work in hospitals, universities or Spanish research centers, in collaboration or without national or foreign teams. As an essential requirement, there must be a Spanish principal researcher linked to one of these centers during the two years of the project’s duration, who will be the sole recipient of the grant.
