Model and funding
The center will be structured around three types of activities/financing based on the principle of "sustainable growth," depending on demand:
1. Basic research: projects that will generate relevant knowledge in the field of nutrition and especially in the origin and mechanisms involved in obesity. These projects are financed:
* with competitive public financing, attending regional, nationaland international R+D funding meetings.
* with the centre's own resources, supplemented by public financing.
2. Applied research (programme contracts)
