WeDo, our first anniversary letter to you
It’s been only a year, but what a year! A year that seems like a lifetime. So many things have changed in our lives, Ángel’s and mine.
We have been through a lot, each one of us and together. Very intense life-changing things: parenting, divorce, losses and wins… And then on top we added our entrepreneurial partnership, as if all the rest was not enough. Struggles and fears, stress, mistakes and learnings, endless brainstormings, naive plannings, exciting ideas and big fails, thrills and hesitations. But the most recurrent words that come to mind when we look back are gratitude, happiness and fulfilment.
WeDo partners with Brighton Collaboration and the Task Force for Global Health for the management of the CEPI-funded “SPEAC” Project.
WeDo is glad to open a new international collaboration in the vaccine development field, becoming a strategic partner in the Task Force for Global Health/Brighton Collaboration SPEAC project (Safety Platform for Emergency vACcines), funded by CEPI (Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations*).
WeDo, one of the 5 awardees of the UAB public tender

WeDo and UIC start a strategic alliance
WeDo has signed a strategic alliance with the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC) for developing and implementing an innovative capacity building programme, adapted to the University real needs and oriented to specific measurable goals.
So, you want a project. Where to start?
After a while searching for research funds, one may struggle to identify new calls of interests aside from the usual suspects (national calls, or very well-known calls in the field) or to consistently broaden the own research portfolio in order to respond to new calls. Here some ideas
WeDo at the 10th H2020 Conference in Spain
WeDo will be at the 10th H2020 Conference to be held next 20th November in Toledo.
The meeting will serve to analyse Spain’s participation in the current H2020 programme and boost Spanish entities’ participation in the upcoming calls, as well as to present the next research and innovation framework programme (Horizon Europe).
The NUVATERA Project
On the 18th September it was published the final resolution to grant the 2017 Retos Colaboración projects funded by the Ministry of Economy and Business in Spain. The NUVATERA project for the development of a new therapeutic vaccine against HIV, led by AELIX Therapeutics SL, was one of the top funded projects and one of the best ranked. WeDo is happy to have contributed to getting the funds and also to be part of the Project Management office of the project.
WeDo is, since this September, installed at the Utopicus Plaza Catalunya coworking building at the heart of Barcelona.
With a fantastic access by public transport and an unbeatable location, the office premises offer all that we need, plus excellent meeting rooms and a fantastic roof-top with exceptional city views.
From your idea to society and from society to your research
We believe in cooperation as the way forward, difference as an innovation driver, dialogue as an enrichment force, and cultural diversity as a plus.
We work with you at all stages to get your idea to society and to gather from society insights that can strenghten and enhance your work.
