Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation

Ever since first engaging in activities in the 1950s, the Foundation has responded to the most fundamental needs of Portuguese society across its four statutory fields of activity: Art, Charity, Education and Science. In keeping with the progressive development of the country, the Foundation’s role has been redefined: the priorities are no longer only Portuguese or those of Portuguese language countries and now fall within an international framework and interrelated with global questions such as intercultural dialogue, migrations, mobility and the environment. This context reflects the background to the currently established Gulbenkian Programmes as well as the projects and initiatives undertaken by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. These programs are undertaken either directly or in partnership with other entities that impact on the themes prevailing in contemporary society through seeking out innovative responses to the problems the world currently faces.
