The winners of this year’s National Innovation and Design Awards were announced on 1 October. Organised by the Ministry of Science and Innovation, this year Eduardo Anitua has been awarded in the “Innovative Trajectory” category.

The judges have highlighted “his innovative spirit at the service of people and the improvement of their health and quality of life” and have valued as exemplary his transfer of knowledge as well as the public-private collaboration he carries out through his company and his foundation.
