VISIBILITY AND
YOUNG TALENT

ASEICA Youth wants to highlight the work of researchers at the start of their career and expose the fact that the underfinancing of the scientific system is causing Spain to lose young talent. More than 50% of our partners are under 40 years old.

Boost the science career of the youngest members of the Association, a platform for mentoring and advice to help them in their daily work.

Research

Training resources for researchers have been reduced by 30% since 2009

Financing

The majority of scientists under 40 have financing problems and face a sea of red tape.

Future

48% think that the future of their line of research is not guaranteed.

Abroad

90% of researchers who work abroad believe that they have no option of returning to Spain.

ASEICA
MENTORING

ASEICA 4 You is a mentoring program designed to help students and young researchers, facilitating the support of colleagues who inspire and guide them in the development of their professional careers.

ASEICA AMBASSADORS

We present the ‘ASEICA Ambassadors’ program, an initiative open to all members who want to help promote our association in their research centers.

AID TO
RESEARCH

Last year ASEICA allocated 100,000 euros to four research grants, recognizing the most cutting-edge works by young researchers and also those with a remarkable career.

II ASEICA YOUNG VIDEO CONTEST

Are you a student in the area of cancer at the TFG or master’s level? Are you a predoctoral or postdoctoral researcher? Do you have a good informative idea to explain what your research project or cancer consists of?

If so, participate in the II ASEICA Young Scientific Video Contest. Give us your personal vision of your research or of how you see the problem of cancer.

COLLABORATION WITH ASSOCIATIONS OF
SCIENTISTS ABROAD

ASEICA has established agreements with the societies of Spanish Scientists in the United Kingdom (CERU), Germany (CERFA), the United States (ECUSA) or RAICEX, in order to increase our interaction with Spanish scientists who work on cancer in these and others countries.
