Date:12/7/2007

Francisco Gonzlez, chairman of BBVA, today presented the BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Awards. The prize money in these new BBVA Foundation Awards (an annual 3.2 million euros) and the breadth of scientific and artistic disciplines addressed place them among the worlds major awards, second only to the Nobel Prize.

In his presentation speech, Francisco Gonzlez affirmed that these awards will honor excellence in research and artistic creation, with an accent on forward-looking projects that address the major challenges confronting the global society of the 21st century.

We also wish to activate societys latent regard for the work of the scientific community, the BBVA Chairman continued, and believe the BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Awards are an effective means to do so.

In sum, he concluded, the awards we are launching here will stand as a new international benchmark, as well as marking a qualitative leap in BBVAs support for knowledge and innovation.

The BBVA Chairman also remarked in this speech that our engagement with society, our vision of corporate social responsibility have led us to devote growing resources both human and financial to the generation and spread of knowledge; this philosophy of the BBVA Group and its foundations, both in Spain and Latin America, is what lies behind initiatives like these Awards, which will stand as a benchmark for scientists and creative practitioners, while providing recognition and encouragement to the many people and teams all round the world who are working, like BBVA, to achieve a better future for humanity.

The BBVA Foundation chairman was joined at the event by Carlos Martnez, president of Spains principal public research organization, the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientficas, which will collaborate in the appointment of technical evaluation committees and propose the chairs of the prize juries.
