The BBVA Foundation presents its Frontiers of Knowledge Awards at a ceremony enthroning science and culture as motors of development

In the words of Francisco González, BBVA Foundation President, these awards spring from BBVA’s conviction that “our collective possibilities, and those of families, individuals and corporations, depend more than ever on the advance of scientific knowledge and innovation”. The BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Awards, established in 2008, recognize research and creative work of excellence. Their eight categories address the main scientific, technological, social and economic challenges of the present day.
