In this issue of La Fundación, THE PICTURE is dedicated to research and science, but we do not see any laboratory, test tube or microscope in the photo. Nonetheless, it is highly important for us. On May 20, the Vice President of Fundación MAPFRE, Ignacio Baeza, received a plaque from Rosa Menéndez, president of the CSIC (Spanish Scientific Research Council), in gratitude for the five million euros donated by Fundación MAPFRE at the start of the pandemic.

This donation helped advance the various projects within the GLOBAL HEALTH/COVIDORIENTED platform, an initiative in which over 300 CSIC research groups and other institutions are participating in more than 100 research projects, organized in five multidisciplinary areas: Prevention, Disease, Containment, Treatment and Impact.
