Next January 19 will take place the Presentation . The meeting will be done at the University of Barcelona (UB). Mr. Salvador Alemany Mas, President of the Cercle d'Economia and President of ABERTIS, will be present at the event.

The objectives of these Awards are to encourage the transfer of knowledge acquired through studies and research, assessing the importance of technology transfer projects, knowledge and innovation, enhancing creation of innovative knowledge-based firms, recognizing the innovative capacity generated and to promote entrepreneurial culture in universities.

The Awards of the Consell Social of the UB and the Bosch i Gimpera Foundation of the UB have been awarded to the project Formoterol: a new therapeutic strategy in the treatment of cachexia (as the best project of transferring knowledge), which will receive 5,000 euros, and the company Intelligent Pharma, SL (as the best innovative company) with 10,000 euros.

The Antoni Caparrós award has been granted to project Formoterol for many reasons. One of them is the publications done. The knowledge transfer award has been given to a pharmaceutical firm of Cambridge (UK). The aim of this company is to develop products for the treatments of cancer symptoms in patients. The patent was licensed to the pharmaceutical in June 2008.

Intelligent Pharma, SL has won the award Senén Vilaró for the best innovative company. This firm was founded in 2007, with the support of the FBG and located in the Bioincubator PCB-Santander.
