British Spanish Society Award

PhD student Javier Díaz received the 2018 British Spanish Society Scholarship aimed at postgraduate students linking Spanish and British research. Plastic Energy sponsored one of the eight awards which will allow Javier  to extend his PhD with a stay in Barcelona to collaborate with Prof. Ignacio Pagonabarraga, working on polymer nanocomposites.


The acceptance ceremony took place in London on the 24th of May at the Spanish Embassy with the presence of the Spanish Embassador and the British Embassador in Spain. The event included speeches by all 8 awardees, who covered a wide variety of topics from history of music to medicine.

The Spanish British Society celebrated the 10th anniversary of these scholarships, which was noted by the presence of many previously awarded students, which was a wonderful opportunity to meet now stablished researchers.
