Spanish government and EMBL sign agreement for EMBL Outstation in Barcelona

At a ceremony on April 10, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and the Spanish government, represented by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO), signed an agreement for a new EMBL satellite. “EMBL Barcelona” will be a new centre at the PRBB, and researchers at the site will explore how tissues and organs function and develop, and how preventing failures in those processes can lead to disease. Alongside cutting-edge research, the site will house imaging facilities that will be available to scientists across the globe.

The signing ceremony was chaired by Luis de Guindos, Spanish Minister of Economy and Competitiveness, accompanied by the Catalan Minister of Business and Knowledge, Jordi Baiget, the Spanish Secretary of State for Research, Development and Innovation, Carmen Vela, EMBL’s General Director and Chair, Iain Mattaj and Patrick Cramer, as well as the directors of the CRG and PRBB, Luis Serrano and Jordi Camí, and representatives from many other entities.
