The Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown will incorporate a public access area corresponding to 50% of the total area of the site. Members of the public will be able to enjoy landscaped gardens, with a wide variety of tree and plantlife, as well as an open air amphitheatre. This amphitheatre will be a wonderful place for music programmes and for lectures, with the water acting as a backdrop to the musicians and the speakers. The outdoor public gardens will complement the covered gardens to be found in Building A.

In this public area the vegetation and plantlife have been chosen to provide coherency and harmony with the surrounding area as well as to ensure sustainability. The principal species chosen are: Celtis australis, Fraxinus angustifolia, Jacaranda mimosifolia, Populus alba, Pinus Pinea,Tipuana tipu, Tamarix canariensis, Eleagnus anguatifolia, Arbustus unedo, Crataegus Monogyna, Phillyrea angustifolia, Quercus coccifera, Calluna vulgaris , Juniperus horizontalis, Lavandula spica, Santolina pinnata, Santolina chamaecyparissus and Satureja montana.

The Champalimaud Foundation supports individual researchers and research teams working at the cutting edge of biomedical science. It aims to stimulate novel theoretical and practical methodologies by utilising the experience of both research scientists and medical practitioners.

The impact of progressive research – basic, applied and clinical – is typically far-reaching, affecting how illnesses and diseases are diagnosed and treated throughout the world. The Champalimaud Foundation aims to maximise the work being done in the fields of cancer research and neuroscience. Another primary objective is to make advances in the field of international vision research. As a result of this, the Foundation intends to make a significant contribution to the fight against vision-related illness and disease.

As it is a private organisation, the scope for the research initiatives and funding programmes of the Champalimaud Foundation is unrestrained by national borders. If a particular country is in a better position – governmentally, clinically and/or institutionally – to accommodate a certain type of biomedical research, the Foundation has the flexibility and freedom to respond quickly and to lend its support.
