Our values

The core values of the endowment fund France Alzheimer for biomedical research are sharing and expertise. It intends to follow the same dynamics than scientists, moved by the pursuit of public interest and the need of fruitful exchanges leading to cross-fertilisation.

An ethical commitment

The endowment fund puts human values at the centre of its mission: tolerance, kindness to others, solidarity, sharing. That is the reason why we decided that all the results that will follow this project will be freely accessible for the entire scientific community. This choice was dictated by our sense of the public interest and the belief that open access is the best way to achieve rapid progress.
