Title: Evidence for Intrinsic Charm in the Proton

Abstract: I briefly review the determination of parton distribution functions (PDFs), with particular emphasis on the recent high-precision NNPDF4.0 PDF set. I specifically address the development of tools for fast and accurate theory predictions, and the validation of final result through dedicated methods. I then specifically discuss the determination of the intrinsic charm component of the proton, its theoretical foundations, and the impact of current and future data.
