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: RESULTS:
Questions relating to five forms of paranormal experience (telepathy, precognition, extra sensory perception, contact with the dead, and mystical/transcendent experiences) were included in two face-to-face IPSOS/Mori omnibus surveys conducted in January and February 2009. In total, a weighted, representative sample of 4,096 adults (16 years+) was collected from 203 sample points in the UK.
11% of the respondents reported at least one telepathic experience; 24% of the respondents reported at least one experience of precognition; 13% of respondents reported at least one experience of extra sensory perception; 10% of respondents reported at least one experience of after after-death communication; and 12% of respondents reported at least on mystical/transcendent experience. Over a third of all respondents reported one or more of these five experiences (36.8 %). This is lower than other existing results but in the middle of estimates suggesting that between 25-45 % of the population is likely to report having had a paranormal experience. With very few exceptions, there was little evidence of significant correlations between reports of experiences and traditional sociological or geodemographic variables (perhaps the most notable exception being the confirmation of the finding from previous studies that women overwhelmingly report more experiences than men). Spatial analysis showed a statistically significant regional skew towards the south west of England. By contrast, the north of England and London showed a statistically significant low level of reports of these psi related/anomalous phenomena.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
This exploratory project used large scale survey data to investigate the contemporary incidence of a range of psi related experiences (PRES) in the UK population. Drawing on existing socio- and geo- demographic data bases, an attempt was made to identify the spatial and geo locational properties of reported PRES, thereby supplementing existing studies of the psychological and sociological correlates of ostensible psi phenomena.
METHODS:
Questions relating to five forms of paranormal experience (telepathy, precognition, extra sensory perception, contact with the dead, and mystical/transcendent experiences) were included in two face-to-face IPSOS/Mori omnibus surveys conducted in January and February 2009. In total, a weighted, representative sample of 4, 096 adults (16 years+) was collected from 203 sample points in the UK.
RESULTS:
11% of the respondents reported at least one telepathic experience; 24% of the respondents reported at least one experience of precognition; 13% of respondents reported at least one experience of extra sensory perception; 10% of respondents reported at least one experience of after after-death communication; and 12% of respondents reported at least on mystical/transcendent experience. Over a third of all respondents reported one or more of these five experiences. With very few exceptions, there was little evidence of significant correlations between reports of experiences and traditional sociological or geodemographic variables (perhaps the most notable exception being the confirmation of the finding from previous studies that women overwhelmingly report more experiences than men). Spatial analysis showed a statistically significant regional skew towards the south west of England. By contrast, the north of England and London showed a statistically significant low level of reports of these psi related/anomalous phenomena.
CONCLUSIONS:
It is argued that the relative absence of correlations between reports of experiences and traditional socio demographic and sociological variables suggests that experiences of psi or anomalous phenomena may be structurally under determined compared to other social practices (for example, political beliefs, shopping habits, choice of where to live, and so on.) The finding that the south west of England yields significant level of experience reporting merits further investigation; but it may be that individuals more open to the possibility of anomalous phenomena are drawn to the west country because of the influence of a range of broader cultural and historical factors (traditional Arthurian myths, new age literature that identifies the 'magical' or mystic properties of the south west, the proximity of Stonehenge and Glastonbury, and so on).
