The CLH Group signs a collaboration agreement with the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre

  • This agreement establishes a collaboration between both organisations in actions to promote cancer research.

The Chairman of the CLH Group, José Luis López de Silanes, and the director of the Carlos III National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO, acronym in Spanish), María A. Blasco, signed an agreement earlier today to promote the collaboration between both organisations.

Through this agreement, the company commits its support to the CNIO for the development of activities related to cancer research and training for research professionals.

Thanks to this collaboration, the CLH Group joins the “Friends of the CNIO” community, which is a philanthropic platform aimed at involving people, businesses and institutions in cancer research (www.cnio.es).

The agreement is part of the Corporate Social Responsibility Policy of the CLH Group, through which the company collaborates with its stakeholders in carrying out projects for the benefit of society and related to social actions, education, environmental protection, culture and entrepreneurship support.

The Spanish National Cancer Research Centre is a public national foundation created by the Carlos III Health Institute and attached to the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. Its aim is to promote cancer research and to become a key player in the fight against the disease in the international scientific community.
