Since its creation in 1976, the Ramón Areces Foundation has devoted its activities to scientific patronage, by promoting research, contributing to the training of human capital, and disseminating knowledge.
It undertakes its activities in the spheres of Life and Matter Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities.
The Foundation's main aims are to contribute to creating a solid scientific and technological structure in Spain in order to improve people's lives, and to seek solutions to the future challenges which modern society faces, most notably in the spheres of economics and education.
Likewise, it works to generate new training opportunities for young researchers and to promote the exchange of ideas for the development of Science, Education and Culture.
The Foundation is firmly committed to cooperation, in the fulfilment of its aims, with public and private institutions, both national and international.
