25 Jan Doctoral Research Fellowship & Award by the Spanish Prince > Premio Proyecto de Investigación Euskal Hiria / Ciudad Vasca
One month after departing to the USA, to start writing my dissertation in March 2008 I received some very important news: My doctoral research project about the Basque City-Region (Euskal Hiria / Ciudad-Región Vasca) had been awarded. On May 28th, I received the research award from the hands of the Spanish Prince and Princess, Felipe de Borbón and Letizia respectively. I also talked with and met personally the Science & Innovation Minister, Ms Cristina Garmendia.
The full title of my PhD dissertation was as follows:
The Basque City-Region from the Social Innovation and Creativity
Dña. Cristina Garmendia, Ministra de Innovación y Ciencia (& Igor Calzada).
