On 5 July, the Auditorium of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) hosted the 21st edition of the UPV Social Council Awards, which recognise the academic and entrepreneurial excellence of students, teachers and researchers at the university, as well as the involvement of companies and institutions in the university environment.
In the university field, the University Institute of Information and Communication Technologies ITACA was distinguished with the UPV Research Award, aimed at recognising initiatives to expand knowledge.
21 years recognising the fundamental role of companies
The president of the UPV Social Council, Monica Bragado, pointed out that “for 21 years now, the Social Council has sought to recognise the importance of collaboration between universities and companies, innovation projects and recognition of the excellence of students and teachers” and highlighted the fundamental role of companies, “contributing to economic activity, generating employment and wellbeing. They are our best allies and show us daily, despite the difficulties, their moral nature, responsibility and solidarity in facing challenges. At the same time, they are committed to society”.
The event was attended by the rector of the UPV, José Esteban Capilla, and the regional secretary for Universities and Research of the Generalitat Valenciana, Carmen Beviá. Both agreed on highlighting the vital work carried out by the Social Council to promote excellence and the close collaboration achieved with the business world.
