Unicaja Banco sponsors the second edition of the ‘Granada Ciudad de la Ciencia y la Innovación’ awards, in which more than 40 candidates have participated. The winners will be announced tomorrow Thursday, in an event held in Cuarto Real de Santo Domingo.

 

These awards were created in 2018, within Mesa por la Ciencia, leaded by Granada City Council, with the goal of disseminating the relevance of the effort of Granada scientific community.

 

As a new feature, this year the awards are exclusively sponsored by Unicaja Banco, which will deliver the prize to the most innovative company. This support responds to the bank’s interest in research and scientific activity, as well as in its interest to promote the business fabric and entrepreneurship, in the areas where it operates in general and in Granada province in particular.

 

On the occasion of the award ceremony, Mesa por la Ciencia has launched a third promotional campaign to raise awareness of the international influence of scientific projects developed in Granada. As the Mayor said, this initiative ‘reflects the high quality of the scientific works promoted from the different institutions of our city’. The goal is, above all, to give visibility to the works developed in Granada and to bring them closer to the citizens.

 

Dissemination of scientific projects

 

In this new action of dissemination of scientific knowledge, a total of eleven projects will be presented. These have been selected and developed in different local scientific institutions. That is the case of the organ plastination developed in the Science Park (Parque de las Ciencias); the reduction of greenhouse gases from ruminants developed in Estación Experimental del Zaidín; the 3-D reconstruction of destroyed buildings carried out at the Escuela de Estudios Árabes, or the patent of a new insulin which will substantially improve the life quality of diabetics, registered by the Instituto Andaluz de Ciencias de la Tierra.

 

If the first campaign of the Mesa de la Ciencia explored the figure and role of researchers, and the second one was based on fundamental research, this time, focus is on applied research and on how the results of the different studies have an influence on the daily lives of citizens, and how they contribute to transform or improve the environment.

 

All the activities and information related to the project ‘Granada. Ciudad de Ciencia e Innovación’ can be found on www.granadaciencia.es.
