Jordi Hernández, former PhD student at Juan Valcárcel’s laboratory and current CRG Entrepreneur in Residence has been awarded the CERCA Pioneer Prize.
The CERCA Pioneer Awards recognise those researchers who have presented a doctoral thesis with results that are clearly aimed at commercial exploitation. With the Pioneer Awards, the CERCA Institute supports researchers in early stages to be aware how valuable their results might be, not only in the scientific arena, but also in terms of their commercial or industrial applications.
The jury, composed by Eduard Balbuena (Enterprise Department at UAB), Josep Maria Pujals (IP lawyer at Oficina Ponti), Melba Navarro (Knowledge Transfer Technology Manager at CIMNE Tecnologia) and Roger Cabezas (Knowledge Manager at CERCA), decided on 13th December the 5 awardees.
