The Chiesi Foundation has developed a new strategy in order to fully unlock the potential of the network and the experience built over the past years. The Foundation has defined clear-cut priorities, to guide the development of the future projects in all its areas of activity.
In relation to the Scientific Research Program, the Foundation publishes on yearly basis two Calls for Scientific Research Proposals, in the field of pulmonology and neonatology, which allow to communicate to the stakeholders the strategic objectives and to better define the proposals to be evaluated. The coherence of the proposals submitted with the specific objectives, stated in the Calls, is an elective criterion in selecting the research projects to be supported.
To define the scope of the International Cooperation activities, Chiesi Foundation is developing a long-term program, focused esclusively on the field of neonatology, with the aim of effictively contributing to the decrease of neonatal mortality rates in low-income and middle-income countries. Within this program, called the NEST - Neonatal Essential Survival Technology - Project, the Foundation plays an active role in designing and developing the activities, by catalysing ideas, competences and resources and looking for new national and international partners.
