ISGlobal - How We Work

The purpose of the ISGlobal value chain is to use the knowledge generated by scientific research to create a virtuous circle:

  • Research and Innovation
  • Education and Training
  • Policy and Global Development

The Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) was set up in 2010 as a result of an initiative of the ”la Caixa” Foundation working with academic and government institutions interested in creating a centre of excellence in research and knowledge translation in Barcelona equipped to meet the new challenges facing global health in the 21st century. Our roots, however, go back much further. Today, ISGlobal encompasses over 30 years’ experience in the field of health and is a consolidated hub of excellence in scientific research drawing on expertise from both the hospital environment and academic institutions.
