About us

OpenMind: BBVA’s knowledge community

OpenMind is a non-profit project run by BBVA that aims to contribute to the generation and dissemination of knowledge about fundamental issues of our time, in an open and free way. The project is materialized in an online dissemination community.

Sharing knowledge for a better future.

At OpenMind we want to help people understand the main phenomena affecting our lives; the opportunities and challenges that we face in areas such as science, technology, humanities or economics. Analyzing the impact of scientific and technological advances on the future of the economy, society and our daily lives is the project’s main objective, which always starts on the premise that a broader and greater quality knowledge will help us to make better individual and collective decisions.

To help us generate rigorous and quality content, at OpenMind almost 300 international contributors collaborate by contributing in different ways to feed a web of dynamic and up-to-date content in Spanish and English. Access to all content is free and the files of our books and articles can be downloaded in several formats (.pdf, .epub and .mobi). Scientists, top-rated authors, researchers and established disseminators participate in our community through their articles and essays (included in the book collection) and in the section on dissemination and scientific culture, with more journalistic texts. With the objective of exploiting the informative potential of all the topics, at OpenMind we work to create increasingly more multimedia formats such as infographics, audiobooks, questionnaires or interactive reports.


On the OpenMind web platform you can participate and share your opinions and reflections, comment on the publications and contact the authors if you are registered on our website or follow us on our social networks.


At OpenMind we organize events regularly: conferences, panels, workshops and presentations of our books. Follow all the news on our contents and activities in our monthly newsletter. Subscribe and receive all the news to enjoy the OpenMind experience to the fullest!

What they say about us


In OpenMind we aim to achieve the greatest dissemination of our books and contents all over the world. In order to do so, we seek partnerships with academic institutions, companies, media, blogs and other brands to enhance the reach of knowledge generated in our community.

Always guided by rigor, reputation and seriousness, we have collaborated in different ways with several institutions through content syndication campaigns, organization and sponsorship of events, etc. We collect some examples in this section.
