Dr. Salvio Suárez-García wins the BIST Scientific Project Management Competition

by Virginia Greco

His pitch on the TIRECAT project earned Dr Suárez an award in the competition organised as part of the Scientific Project Management Course offered by BIST.

The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST) has recently offered a Course on Scientific Project Management for members of the BIST centres interested in learning the basic concepts, techniques, and procedures –as well as getting a broad and general vision— of the management of scientific projects. The vocabulary and general guidelines necessary to the full understanding of the process were also taught. Articulated in five different sessions, the course combined theory and practice and used the principles of collaborative learning through the preparation of practical cases in groups, always with a hands-on approach. The whole training was provided by Dr Iolanda Marchueta, senior advisor and professor specialized in transversal leadership and high-performance teams.

The competition was held on the last day of the course, when the participants were asked to pitch their proposals in front of a jury, applying the methodology and tools learned during the course. Dr Salvio Suárez-García, postdoctoral researcher in the ICN2 Nanostructured Functional Materials Group (Nanosfun), presented the project entitled “TIRECAT: A new Bioinspired Regenerative Platform“, which he is carrying out within the group at the ICN2. The pitch was prepared in collaboration with Dr Giulio Rosati, from the ICN2 Nanobioelectronics and Biosensors Group, who is developing the TIRECAT project in partnership with Dr Suárez.

Congratulations on this achievement!
