Former vice-rector of ULisboa, António Feijó, becomes the new President of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. António Cruz Serra, former Rector of the ULisboa, is elected executive member of the Board of Directors.

 

The aim of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation is to improve quality of life through art, charity, science, and education. It develops its activities in its headquarters, in Lisbon, as well as its delegations in Paris and London, having also intervened in Portuguese-speaking African countries (PALOP) and East Timor, and in countries with Armenian communities. Its founder, Calouste Sarkis Gulbenkian, philanthropist of Armenian origin, lived in Lisbon from 1942 until his death, in 1955.

The Foundation has a museum, which houses the Calouste Gulbenkian’s private collection, and a Centre for Modern Art (Centro de Arte Moderna), which brings together the most important collection of Portuguese modern and contemporary art; an orchestra and choir; an art library and archive; a scientific research institute; and a garden, which is a central location in the city of Lisbon, where educational activities also take place.
