"Because we realize that time is running out and the world can come to a standstill... research must advance." This is the message of the Institut Pasteur's communications campaign, launched several weeks ago and which will be on TV screens at the end of the year. This message conveys the vital truth that research should never be slowed down or stopped, regardless of the circumstances, if we are to keep pushing the boundaries of scientific knowledge.
At a time still disturbed by the epidemic situation that continues, the role of research is more crucial than ever to enable us to anticipate and tackle new threats. That's why the Institut Pasteur's scientists are committed to advancing knowledge and improving human health.
Scientific research is a lengthy process. An ongoing effort is needed over the long term to support it. By helping to promote this campaign, the Institut Pasteur flies the colors of research and spread the word that scientific research needs to be defended and supported. At the Institut Pasteur, public generosity is one of the main sources of funding – more than a third of the Institut Pasteur’s budget is from gifts and donations, with the rest coming from revenue from its own activities, including patents and licenses, and from government funding (find out more).
