“Not a laboratory for mixing compounds, but a laboratory for mixing scientists”

Lord William Henry Beveridge, patró de la CIBA Foundation, 1949 

With this philosophy began the activities of the Dr. Antoni Esteve Foundation in 1984, under the Presidency of Dr. Josep Esteve Soler and the Management of Dr. Sergi Erill Sáez. Both were inspired by the previous experience of the English CIBA Foundation, founded by Sir Gordon Wolstenholme to encourage collaboration in biomedical research.
