The network was inspired by the National Plan of Scientific Research, Development and Technological Innovation framework whose Strategical Health Action establishes as one of its objectives “to increase the number and quality of human resources for health R&D&i”. The National Network of Biostatistics was first presented in April 2010 to the Education Ministry as a complementary action of scientific-technical nature.

In September 2010, after a selection process and in an advertising, objectivity and evaluation regime, this thematic network was established and called BIOSTATNET.

The BIOSTATNET Network has been funded through the following research projects:

  • MTM2010-09213- E: Formación de una Red Nacional de Bioestadística. Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación (2010-2012)
  • MTM2011-15849- E: Consolidación de la Red BIOSTATNET: nuevas estrategias de colaboración en investigación, transferencia y formación. Ministerio de Economía, Industria y Competitividad (2012-2014)
  • MTM2015-69068- REDT: Afrontando Retos de Investigación Bioestadística con Proyección Internacional. Ministerio de Economía, Industria y Competitividad (2015-2017)
  • MTM2017-90568- REDT: BIOSTATNET: potenciando la excelencia investigadora nacional e internacional en bioestadística. Ministerio de Economía, Industria y Competitividad (2018-2020)
