About the Organization

The BBVA Foundation expresses the corporate social responsibility of the BBVA Group, in particular, its commitment to the advancement of the societies where it conducts its business activity. This responsibility and commitment have given rise to an extensive body of work in diverse knowledge areas.

The promotion of knowledge based on research and artistic and cultural creation, and the interaction of these domains, forms a core strand of the BBVA Foundation’s work program. The most effective way to increase the degrees of freedom available to individuals and expand our collective choices is to continually enlarge and reinvent our cultural fabric and the frontiers of inherited knowledge. The three main thrusts of the Foundation’s work are accordingly support for scientific research and cultural creation (through grants for individuals and teams), the dissemination of knowledge and culture, and the recognition of talent and innovation through diverse families of awards.

The Foundation focuses its activity on the analysis of emerging issues in five strategic areas: Environment, Biomedicine and Health, Economy and Society, Basic Sciences and Technology, and Culture. The BBVA Foundation designs, develops and funds research projects in these areas; facilitates advanced, specialist training through grants, courses, seminars and workshops; organizes award schemes for researchers and professionals whose work has contributed significantly to the development of knowledge; and communicates and disseminates such new knowledge through publications, lectures and debates.
