Mission and objectives

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:

  1. To promote research in specific areas of bioethics by awarding grants and prizes.
  2. 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.
  3. To produce publications disseminating the work of the Foundation, and other documents relating to bioethics.
  4. 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.
