The CNIO obtains a substantial part of its funding from external sources, a process in which hundreds of researchers submit proposals for approval by a committee of peers who decide on awarding the financing necessary to carry them out.
In 2027 alone, CNIO researchers submitted proposals for 135 national and international initiatives. Of this number, 42 were in collaboration with other institutions. The CNIO was the lead author in some 10 of the latter.
Internationally pitched initiatives receive financing from official bodies such as the European Commission, the U.S. Institutes of Health , the U.S. Department of Defense, the Melanoma Research Alliance, Sweden’s Paradifference Foundation, Britain’s Worldwide Cancer Research, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) and the European Foundation for the Study of Diabetes (EFSD).
In Spain, research projects more localized or national in scope are likely to be underwritten by the State Research Agency, the Ministry of the Economy, and the Carlos III Institute of Health.
