Call for applications for the Marine Sustainability Award promoted by the Banco Sabadell Foundation

The Banco Sabadell Foundation promotes scientific research with the creation of the Banco Sabadell Foundation Marine Sustainability Award. This award aims to promote the work of Spanish scientists in the fields of marine sustainability, sustainable use of resources and regeneration of natural capital.

The award reinforces the Foundation’s commitment to disclosure, training and research, as well as its support of young talent. It recognises the work of a single researcher who has conducted research into the sustainable use of marine resources, in both traditional marine industries and in new emerging sectors, or in the regeneration of marine natural capital by recovering ecosystems’ goods and services.
