The Víctor Grífols i Lucas Foundation was created in 1998 with the mission of promoting bioethics through dialogue between specialists in a range of areas. The Foundation seeks to foster ethical attitudes in organizations, companies and individuals active in the field of human health. To achieve this, it offers a discussion platform that provides a forum for the exchange of different perspectives on the ethics of life.
To carry out this mission, the Foundation has the following objectives:
- To promote research in specific areas of bioethics by awarding grants and prizes.
- To organize conferences, seminars and workshops that raise awareness of and explore the ethical issues that are constantly encountered in the life and medical sciences.
- To produce publications disseminating the work of the Foundation, and other documents relating to bioethics.
- To work with organizations, universities and other educational institutes to conduct research work and to produce publications that contribute to a deeper understanding of the ethics of life.
