Awards of the Social Council of the UB and the Bosch i Gimpera Foundation: Ten Years Fostering Knowledge Transfer

The awards of the Social Council of the University of Barcelona and the Bosch i Gimpera Foundation for the transfer of knowledge and the creation of innovative companies celebrate their tenth edition. These awards aim to promote the return to society of the knowledge acquired through study and research, to stress the importance of technology, knowledge, and innovation transfer projects, and to foster the creation of innovative companies and entrepreneurial culture within the UB Group.

The tenth edition of the awards is open in two categories: the Antoni Caparrós prize for the best project in knowledge, technology, and innovation transfer, and the Senén Vilaró prize for the best innovative company developed by a UB graduate or linked to the UB Group.

The deadline for submission of applications is 31 May.

In the category Antoni Caparrós, the jury may grant up to two awards taking into account the economic and social impact of the project. These impacts will be assessed based on factors such as the increased competitiveness of the target organizations, the dissemination, public engagement, and the benefits of the project for society in general.
