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 2022 alone, CNIO researchers participates in 152 national and international projects. Of this number, 66 were in collaboration with other institutions. The CNIO was the leading entity in 20 collaborative projects.
International projects receive financing from official bodies such as the European Commission, the U.S. Institutes of Health (NIH), the U.S. Department of Defense, the Melanoma Research Alliance, Sweden’s Paradifference Foundation or the British Worldwide Cancer Research, as relevant examples.
The national projects are mostly financed by the Agencia Estatal de Investigación and the Instituto de Salud Carlos III, both dependent on the Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación, and a large number of them co-financed with European Regional Development Funds (ERDF) or through the Reconstruction, Transformation and Resilience Plan with NextGeneration EU Funds from the European Union after the Covid-19 pandemic crisis.
