The King and Queen of Spain, Felipe VI and Letizia, presented the Rei Jaume I Awards at the Lonja de València. Before, a tribute to the figure of the scientist Santiago Grisolía, its founder, was held. The ceremony was also attended for the first time by two Nobel Prize winners, Finn E. Kydland and Roger Kornberg, jurors of the awards. The latter was in charge of dedicating a few words to the figure of the professor, emphasizing that “Santiago’s great success in the promotion of science in Spain was due in large part to his personal warmth and generosity of spirit, to his selflessness and firm commitment, to his wisdom and dignity. Santiago was a gentleman. Those of us who had the privilege of assisting him in the process of awarding the Rei Jaume I Awards will continue to do so in his memory. Santiago’s contributions to science and society in Spain and to the Awards are his legacy”.
