Xavier Obradors: "Research is a future investment, not an expense"

Last night, on May 24, Xavier Obradors received the Ambassador Award from the Regió 7 daily journal. Neus Munté, Minister of Presidency and government spokesperson, delivered the award. 

The awards ceremony took place in the Auditorium Plana de l'Om in Manresa, and Xavier was the first one to receive the award. During his speech, he said he was proud that this award linked his professional scientific life with his territory and his people. 

Xavier stated that scientists are facing global challenges, and that they keep progressing from the uncertainty and the unknown. In this way, he would like that the scientific advances achieved in the Research Centers could be transferred faster to the society, to the industry, to the people.


As ICMAB director, this is what he has been aiming for. "Research should become a benefit for our country; it is a future investment, not an expense. Our economy has no future without being strong in this area."

Congratulations, Xavier, for this "Ambassador" award!
