Seven million for scholarships

The General Manager, Álvaro Balibrea, pointed out that "we were coming from two difficult years due to the pandemic and to undertake major projects, especially the new urban campus in Madrid. In spite of the economic situation, income has grown and the result has been positive. This has allowed us to recover part of what was invested in previous years, although we must continue on this path of results with a surplus. As a non-profit institution, we can invest these surpluses in improvements for the teaching and the research".

Balibrea thanked the professionals for their efforts during this time: "Their commitment to healthcare activity, professor and research has enabled us to overcome the impact of this healthcare crisis and face the future with hope in the midst of many uncertainties".
