Research Fellowship The research projects of the FIO and the IOFV generate a high teaching capacity that can be employed for the training of researchers.

Although most of them study regulated programmes such as the University of Oviedo doctorate or pre-doctoral contracts, they may also stay in the FIO / IOFV. These investigators will contact a Principal Researcher to define tasks during their stay.
The Research and Teaching Commission of IOFV-FIO will evaluate the applications of the candidates and will resolve, within one month, the authorization of their research stay at our centre.
