As part of the ongoing binational collaboration on drug abuse research between NIDA and the Spanish Plan Nacional sobre Drogas (PNSD), Spanish researchers may apply for funding from PNSD to support brief research visits with NIDA-funded investigators in the United States.

The Spanish researchers will learn new research methods, promote awareness of Spain’s academic and scientific research environment, advance collaboration between Spanish and U.S. institutions and researchers, and increase the qualifications and visibility of Spanish scientists as potential research partners. Interested Spanish researchers should contact Dr. José Oñorbe de Torre at PNSD for more information. NIDA and PNSD first signed agreements to cooperate on drug abuse and addiction research in 1997.
