It has been 19 years since the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB) and the Faculty of Medicine and Life Sciences of Pompeu Fabra University decided to create the PRBB Award. An award that recognises the best research work in health and life sciences carried out by students in secondary school from centres all over Catalonia.
Once the call has closed and all the works have been received (don’t wait until the last minute to send them in!), the work of the jury will begin. Different scientific committees will select the best papers in several rounds until they are left with five finalists. The finalists will then have to prepare a scientific poster that they will defend before the jury at the PRBB on 19 April, before the awards ceremony. Once the classification has been established, the winner will receive a prize of €1,000, the runner-up €500, the third runner-up €350 and those on fourth and fifth position a prize of €200 each.
An award with a long history
The PRBB Award was created in 2005 with the aim of being the first door to research for students captivated by science. This video shows how the finalists of the 16th edition of the award explain their experience.
Since its inception, we have received more than 2,400 works from more than 2,700 participants from all over Catalonia.
