The Network has held this Wednesday, its first meeting in Madrid, bringing together scholars from all over Spain, as well as members of the commissions of expert that, in each call, evaluate the nominations.

The Scholarships Leonardo were born in 2014 to promote the advance of knowledge in Spain through the support of people of between 30 and 45 years old who are in an intermediate stage of their careers and have a lot of growth potential.
