The BBVA Foundation celebrates the transformative power of knowledge at the Frontiers Awards ceremony

The presentation ceremony of the BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Awards again transformed the Marqués de Salamanca Palace, Madrid headquarters of the BBVA Foundation, into a window from which to contemplate some of the key ideas, insights and challenges that define the modern age. From the discovery of how the galaxies were formed to the construction of mathematical models to help preserve biodiversity; from the development of an astoundingly precise technique for studying the living brain to the drawing of a “global line” for the measurement of extreme poverty, the roll of achievements of the laureates in the eighth edition attests to the huge transformative power of knowledge.
