CNIO Arte initiative

CNIO Arte is an initiative that establishes contact between renowned international scientists and artists to explore common territories between scientific research and artistic creation. It has the support of Banco Santander Foundation and in its first two editions it has also had the collaboration of the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology - Ministry of Science.

The culmination of each annual edition of CNIO Arte is the exhibition of the work created by the artist for that occasion and its subsequent sale to raise funds to eradicate cancer. The profits from CNIO Arte sales go entirely to finance research at the CNIO, throughout ‘CNIO Friends’ philanthropic initiative.
