The prime minister of Portugal, António Costa, and the president of ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation, Isidro Fainé, have today signed a collaboration agreement in Porto to jointly promote research projects of excellence and high social impact in the field of biomedicine and health.


As a result of this partnership the Foundation for Science and Technology will match investment made by ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation in research projects selected in the context of the Foundation’s extension of activity in Portugal.


The call for research project grants opened by ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation is addressed to projects of excellence in the fields of oncology, neuroscience and infectious and cardiovascular diseases, as well as to cross-cutting biomedical projects.


“Yesterday we presented the action plan for 2018 of the Banking Foundation in Portugal, the fruit of our partnership with BPI, and today we can see what one of our strategic lines of action will be: support to research. We undertake this with the best possible travelling companion: the Portuguese government, whom I wish to thank for the confidence they have placed in us. Our goal is shared: to contribute to the progress of Portugal and the wellbeing of the Portuguese”, explained the president of "la Caixa" Banking Foundation, Isidro Fainé.


With more than a century of history, ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation is the largest in Spain and among the foremost institutions of its kind at the international level.
