JAE Intro Programme

The JAE Intro programme offers grants at CSIC centres (CSIC-owned, mixed or partner units) aimed at university students interested in starting a research career.

This scholarship programme provides an approach to a research career to those students who want to take their first steps in research. JAE Intro grants present the opportunity of enjoying the possibilities offered by CSIC Centres and Institutes in their different scientific areas and, at the same time, they provide an introduction to cutting-edge knowledge of scientific topics and scientific praxis.

This explanatory video will clarify the structure of the JAE Intro Programme.
