The BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Awards ceremony points up the power of knowledge to mold our worldviews

For Francisco González, President of the BBVA Foundation, “science is, in essence, culture. Its core concepts and ideas are part of citizens’ mental software, and shape our identities and how we see the world”. The awards, spanning eight categories, address two of the great global challenges of our times: climate change and the development of large areas of the planet. Laureates coincide in the need to promote basic knowledge for the advancement of society.
