Title:
BIAL Foundation Archive
Start date: 1994
History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratórios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIAL’s Foundation mission is to foster the scientific study of Man from both the physical and spiritual perspectives.
Along the years the BIAL Foundation has developed an important relationship with the scientific community, first in Portugal and after worldwide. Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.
Classified as an institution of public utility, the BIAL Foundation includes among its patrons the Portuguese President, the Portuguese Universities Rectors' Council and the Portuguese Medical Association.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A group of recent, well-controlled ganzfeld studies failed to replicate the positive findings of earlier work (Milton & Wiseman, 1999a). This presents a challenge to claims that a ganzfeld psi effect can be replicated across experimenters under methodologically stringent conditions. Because of the ganzfeld's history as a focus for proof-oriented questions, this situation has implications for parapsychology as a whole. In this paper, it is shown that replication of effect size in the recent ganzfeld studies is not demonstrated across experimenters, regardless of whether the database is updated to include recent studies or whether outcome and cumulation statistics different from those preplanned are applied. Problems with interpreting as strong evidence for psi other parapsychological meta-analyses of less clearly well-conducted studies and apparently consistent process-oriented findings are discussed. The case is made for continuing with ganzfeld research as an important focus of parapsychology's claims for replicability. It is argued that if there is a replicable ganzfeld psi effect, however, the procedures necessary to produce it have not yet been identified. It is proposed that process-oriented work be directed to the goal of identifying which studies should be able to replicate an above-chance effect, and that these studies, identified by their planned procedures before they have been conducted, should provide the basis for future tests of replication. The organization of an international, electronic-mail discussion of these issues among 41 researchers with a special interest in ganzfeld research is described. The edited transcript of the discussion is presented in Part II.
