Welcome to the website of the Health Research Institute of the Balearic Islands (IdISBa).
Here you can see the large arrangement of institutions that the IdISBa represents. The IdISBa has established 7 research areas, which are comprised by the 55 research groups and around 800 researchers of the Institute. This is the result of 10 years of hard work, which also made possible that the IdISBa got the recognized accreditation of the Carlos III Health Institute in 2019. I would like to express my gratitude for the ongoing efforts and dutifulness of all of the IdISBa employees during this period.
The IdISBa is open for collaboration and, for this reason, we want to expand the horizons of the Institute and thus support synergies and make the results reach more efficiently the population. In our website, you can find information regarding our research areas, groups and projects, as well as our scientific and technical platforms and our research output. Because researchers require the support from the management and administrative staff, we plan to strengthen their collaborative structure to optimize resources and maintain an integrative work environment that promotes the excellence in research.
I would also like to emphasize our commitment to promoting innovation initiatives as well as research quality. We must encourage the development of multidisciplinary research projects that align with the main health challenges. Sharing scientific findings helps to the cross-sectional knowledge, with the duty of each researcher being key to providing relevant information about different pathologies and their determinants.
We will keep working towards improving our visibility, strengthening our institutional alliances, and consolidating our funding. Additionally, we must take a step further in the promotion of activities that involve the citizens’ participation and implication in research.
In accordance with the new strategic plan, which we will be preparing for the coming years, our goal is to promote the collaboration in research, which must be oriented not only to improving the people’s health, but also their hope.
Thank you for visiting our website.

IdISBa is the leading institution on health research and innovation in the Balearic Islands. Its main objective is to improve the population health in the Balearic Islands, which is made possible thanks to the combined efforts of the excellent people that are part of IdISBa’s research groups.
Here at the Institute’s management area, we focus our efforts to working together with the research groups and aid in their research activity. To do so, each area is run by prominent professionals who daily work towards meeting the research groups’ needs. Being aware that they are a structural part of the research process, they bring out the best in them so they are able to guarantee the required excellent results.
These excellent results in the management area are possible because we work in accordance with the latest and most demanding quality criteria. Our many accreditations and certificates are evidence of this, as our Institute is a health research institute accredited by the Carlos III Health Institute (ISCIII), our research platforms have been awarded with prestigious ISO certifications, and the management of our human resources has been recognized with the European HR Excellence in Research Award.
Regardless of their public or private nature, we must guarantee the good use of each and every available resource. For this reason, we make available to the general audience all our detailed information following the criteria on transparency and publicity.
But before anything else, it must be emphasized that our magnificent team is made up of people who are passionate about their work. As the managing director of this institution, I am committed to lead this commendable team and, together, work and improve those areas that will keep hold of the level of excellence that has already been achieved.
We hope the website you are surfing on answers your information needs regarding the management areas and their functioning. We are also here for you in case you have any unsolved doubt or require further information to increase your understanding of our institution.
