The award recognises the idea that has the most positive impact on society and can bring about the greatest transformation and social progress.

For the third consecutive year, the Ramon Molinas Foundation is collaborating with the Open University of Catalonia (UOC) with the objective of developing #SpinUOC 2020, an initiative which promotes innovation, the transfer of knowledge and entrepreneurship in the UOC community.

#SpinUOC, in its eighth edition, is open to all students, alumni, professors, researchers, collaborating professors and management staff at the Open University of Catalonia that have developed a project, service or technological product that is both innovative and transferable to market.

Of all the written projects and after a process of training and advice that will last around two and a half months, a jury formed of eleven experts, one of which is Mark Topping -project manager at the RMF- will determine the eight candidates that will attend the #SpinUOC 2020 gala. The finalists will present their projects on the 18th June 2020, in front of leading figures and organisations that are able to implement or promote the projects in their fields.

 

‘Ramon Molinas Foundation prize for best project with social impact’

The #SpinUOC 2020 will have three award categories, one of which is sponsored by the Foundation. The ‘Ramon Molinas Foundation prize for the best project with social impact’ is worth 2,000 euros and will recognise the idea that has the most positive impact on society and can bring about the greatest transformation and social progress.

The ‘Prize for the best entrepreneurial project’, will recognise the most innovative idea and award the winner 3,000 euros. The ‘Audience award for the best presentation’, worth 2,000 euros, will allow event attendees to have their say and award a prize to the candidate with the best presentation.

The Ramon Molinas Foundation, which is sponsoring the prizes, will continue to promote technological and scientific entrepreneurship to inspire and feed good ideas that will serve to improve society.
