Knowledge Path. Training Program 2020

imatge pla formatiu 2020The priority objective of the Training Program is to perfect the qualifications and professional skills needed to carry out the work and, in the case of research staff, to carry out translational research and excellence in the following areas: research prioritized by the IRSJD, and in Innovation.

We are committed to the talent and development of human capital and, with this aim in mind, the 2019-2022 strategic plan includes several lines of work aimed at strengthening staff training.

On the other hand, our recently recognized commitment to "HR Excellence in Research" ensures compliance with the principles of the European Charter for Researchers, which states that institutions must develop an attractive workplace and a stimulating environment. Of particular importance in this regard is the development of talent through training.

In addition, at a general context, our professionals also need to develop a number of skills that will enable them to successfully evolve in their careers (inside or outside our Institution) and adapt to a flexible work environment. Given this scenario, the development of generic and transferable skills is also of particular importance.

This training plan is complemented by seminars and training activities carried out by the different institutions that make up the Sant Joan de Déu Research Institute.

Who is it for?

The main target of the training plan is the training staff and young researchers hired by the FSJD (or Ciber), and the staff members of the Research Institute: training staff, support technical staff, post-doctoral staff and senior, both own and attached. This training program is also aimed at the Management Staff and the staff of the FSJD Clinical Trials Unit.

On the other hand, this program will also be open to staff at hospitals wishing to focus on research.

Additionally, it is possible to include other groups outside the Institution within the framework of the Research Seminars and Scientific Days of the Institute.

Training and organizational modalities

Four types of training modalities are established to enhance the development of the different competency dimensions:

  • Knowledge and techniques: Activities aimed at increasing scientific knowledge and the tools and techniques needed for research.
  • Soft Skills: Activities aimed at working on personal qualities and competencies.
  • Organization and Governance: Activities aimed at getting to know internal regulations and work processes.
  • Institutional training (Values): Institutional training will allow us to deepen our identification with the values of Sant Joan de Déu, and the application of these values in our daily lives.

At the organizational level, we have two types of modalities:

  • Specialization sessions: less than 2h of duration.
  • Courses: Activities lasting longer than 2 hours.
