Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO)
In 2012, the foundation and the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) began a business training programme for scientists designed by the IE Business School in Madrid.
This programme gives scientists the finance, management, marketing and leadership knowledge they need to advance their professional careers. During the training period, they also have the opportunity of creating innovative projects which, once evaluated by the CNIO, will help to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.
SRUK/CERU Emerging Talent Award
Society of Spanish Researchers in the United Kingdom
Fundación Banco Santander and the Society of Spanish Researchers in the United Kingdom offer the SRUK/CERU Emerging Talent Award to recognise the accomplishments of young Spanish scientists working in the United Kingdom.
In 2017 the award went to physicist Xavier Moya, who is pursuing his research in the field of materials science and environmental sustainability at the University of Cambridge. The jury was impressed by his contributions to the discovery of new mechanocaloric materials with low environmental impact used in refrigeration systems.
The award—consisting of a sculpture by artist Cristina Iglesias and a cash prize of 14,000 pounds—was presented on 14 December at the Spanish embassy in London.
