The call for the 2020 Hestia Awards, from the Hestia Chair in Integrated Health and Social Care, promoted by the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC Barcelona) and Fundación Hestia, aimed to recognise the best initiatives in the field of research in health and social care and mental health, whose objective was to improve care of chronic complex patients with high social vulnerability in the period 2018-2019.

This call, alongside the Hestia Research Grants is an important step towards recognising and disseminating the work carried out by healthcare professionals in the field of health and social care and mental health. In this sector, it is difficult to get the necessary funding and support to carry out research. As such, the Hestia Chair wants to offer support to make this possible.
The deadline for application was February 20th 2020.
