The mission given by the INCA to the SIRICS is to focus on integrated research which ultimately aims to improve patient care. BRIO efforts are thus focused on applied research. However BRIO recognises the need to support early research as well and to incorporate it into the SIRIC projects, since fundamental research will eventually feed BRIO‘s applied research.
BRIO will thus support the development of original ideas within the Bordeaux scientific community and intend to mutualise competencies available from different partners to support knowledge sharing and open new research avenues.
While improving patient care will always be BRIO‘s ultimate target, finding alternative sources of funding will be an important objective to support and integrate fundamental research into BRIO’s programs.
