Mission, vision and values
CINBIO, investigadores e investigadoras do máis alto nivel
Our fundamental objective is to have a multiplier effect on society and give back highly-specialised professionals, scientific knowledge and transference. In order to solidify the future of our research, CINBIO endeavours to light the spark of creativity in up-and-coming researchers, and attract the talents of established experts in highly technical fields to create a multidisciplinary research centre of international renown.
It is our goal to consolidate CINBIO as the reference centre for innovation in the fields of biotechnology and biomedicine through excellence and a more direct response to the needs of society.
With this goal in mind, and in alignment with European, national and autonomic health strategies, the mission of CINBIO is to create and transfer knowledge and innovation in the fields of biomedicine and biotechnology, always using a collaborative and multidisciplinary approach. To this end, we work tirelessly to reinforce the research capacity of our specialised group as well as their international status; we carry out quality research projects and develop new infrastructures; we take part in joint research programmes with other national and international institutions; we participate in teaching initiatives to increase the number of experts in the fields of biomedicine and biotechnology; and we foster the application of research results through contracts, patents, licenses as well as the foundation of spin-offs. In addition, we advocate for the reduction of the imbalance that still persists today between men and women in science, technology and industrial leadership, speaking from a research centre in which more than half of the staff is women and where 35% hold leadership positions.
