ICREA Professor, Dr. Josep Dalmau, Jaume I Award in Clinical Medicine.
This year marks the 29th edition of the Prizes dedicated to the promotion of Science, Research and Entrepreneurship in Spain. The awards, of the best paid in the country, consist of gold medal, diploma and an endowment of 100,000 € with the commitment to reinvest a part in Spain. Santiago Grisolía, founding President of these Awards, was in charge of informing the winners of this recognition, in which 18 Nobel Prize winners participated, as well as a broad representation of Spanish entrepreneurs, last June.
Over these almost thirty years, the Rey Jaime I Awards have been consolidated as the most prestigious awards that recognize the research and business activity carried out in Spain.
In these years, 140 scientists, number one in their fields, of which 122 are part of the ACC (High Advisory Council), was created in 1998 to advise the Presidency of the Generalitat Valenciana on research, development and technological innovation, as well as to prepare reports, presentations and opinions by order of the President of the Generalitat.
