With these Awards, Acerinox recognises the work of the University students who finish their Degree or Master project with relation to stainless steels.
Bernardo Velázquez thanked the warm welcome of the University Jaume I, highlighting in his speech the relevance of investing in those who will make decisions in the future, showing the extraordinary material stainless steel is: “which keeps on developing, growing and each year we find new applications of it”. He also expressed this as a unique opportunity: “we can build a bridge and work together, enterprise and university, and help to develop a sustainable society… guaranteeing the employability of the youth”.
