IFO Facebook cover
"Blend cultures, “contaminate” Science and Art and sustain avant-garde research so that society progresses and there are new prospects for the future. The IBSA Foundation has addressed this difficult yet fascinating path in its first 10 years. We’ll try to continue in the same way, with our initiatives that involve leading partners, flanking students in middle schools and universities, citizens who are attracted by mental challenge, young people who work and study in Life Sciences.
We’ll go forward with the same enthusiasm as always."
