In total, five prizes are awarded: four individual prizes to young people (between 16 and 35 years old) who undertake and start work, a business, a commitment, especially if they involve difficulty or risk, and with this, they are able to induce creatively positive changes in society, and an entity that works for young people, especially in the promotion of entrepreneurship, employability and job placement, education and school success, vocation and talent.
Rubén Darío Costa is a Valencian and a doctor of chemistry from the University of Valencia. He has achieved a European Research Council Consolidator project that rewards research excellence in Europe. For all these merits, the jury has decided to grant the Princess of Girona Foundation Award for Scientific Research.
