Support to european research

To give support to European biomedical research and to defend its role and identity vs. international competition; to encourage the development of a network of first class researchers covering all Council of Europe member countries and to retain or to attract the best of the worldwide biomedical elite to the old continent - such are the Foundation’s objectives.

At a time when Europe is still struggling to catch up, the Foundation invests nearly CHF 2m per year in European biomedical research. It provides support at all stages in researchers’ careers.
