Approach to sponsorship

Long-term initiatives

At international level, Expanscience is involved in a number of sponsorship initiatives that are a reflection of its commitment to children and their development, families and parenthood, as well as the elderly and the provision of support for them.


Since 1982, we have been supporting research and projects focusing on child development and parenthood through the Mustela Foundation.


We have also been supporting research into Osteoarthritis since 1998 and Dermatology since 2002.

The Mustela Foundation

The mustela foundation

The Mustela Foundation was created in 1982 under the aegis of the Fondation de France and supports research and projects on child development and parenthood in order to improve quality of life for children throughout the world.


Its initiatives have three main goals:

  • support research by awarding Prizes and Grants,
  • promote prevention and education in children's healthcare,
  • fund the implementation of field projects.


Its work is of relevance to healthcare professionals (paediatric nurses, midwives, paediatricians, child psychiatrists, psychologists...), as well as the general public through a number of field projects and prevention programmes.
