The objective of the CDEIGENT call is to attract talent to join existing reference research groups in research centers or public universities in the Comunitat Valenciana to help drive the transformation of the Valencian Economic Model.

A maximum of 9 grants will be awarded, distributed proportionally among the areas of knowledge established by the State Research Agency, as a function of the number of applications submitted that meet the requirements.

The grants will be awarded for a period of four years (48 months), extendable for another two years. The extension must be requested and justified by the host institution six months before the end of the grant and must be authorized by the Director General of Science and Research. The approval of any extension will be conditioned to the existence of adequate and sufficient credit in the budgets of the Generalitat Valenciana for the corresponding fiscal year
