Despite the pandemic context, in 2020 the number of proposals has remarkably increased. Even though the number of granted projects was expected to be lower in comparison with 2019, those granted represent a much higher income with respect to the previous year. Taking into account that 2020 is not affected by the influence (as was 2018) of the second “Center of Excellence Severo Ochoa” award, it is safe to conclude that 2020 is one of the best years of ICN2, if not the best, in this regard.
