The Biogen Idec Foundation was established in 2001, dedicated to improving the quality of people's lives and contributing to the vitality of the communities where we operate, with a special emphasis on innovative ways to promote science literacy and encourage young people to consider science careers.
As Biogen Idec grows, we continue to invest deeply and strengthen our partnerships and support the communities in which we operate. In 2012, we reinvigorated and restructured the Biogen Idec Foundation to ensure that our philanthropic efforts keep pace with our corporate growth. The result is that our foundation made a stronger impact on our communities through significant programs. For information on the programs and initiatives supported by the Biogen Idec Foundation in 2012, please see our 2012 Corporate Citizenship Report.
