The BBVA Foundation hands over its Frontiers Awards celebrating knowledge as the best means we have to confront today’s global challenges

For Francisco González, President of the BBVA Foundation, “knowledge is the wellspring of our individual and collective opportunities, our main evolutionary resource, and our one solution” to present and emerging challenges. The winners in this seventh edition exemplify the value of basic knowledge and the optimism that comes from the transformative power of knowledge in such varied domains as health, the environment, the technological revolution, world hunger and artistic innovation. The Frontiers Awards recognize advances in areas congruent with the knowledge map of the late 20th century and the present day.
