The General Secretariat of Universities of the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities has delivered today, at the Rey Juan Carlos University, the awards of the XVII Archimedes University Competition, which awards the best research projects in all areas of knowledge carried out by undergraduate students and master's degree from Spanish universities.

This seventeenth edition has the participation of collaborating entities of the event such as the Higher Council for Scientific Research, the Once Foundation and the Vencer el Cncer Foundation, to which this year the Rey Juan Carlos University joins.

In this edition 200 projects have been presented, of which 25% belong to the area of ??Social Sciences and Humanities, 20% to Engineering and Architecture, 33% to the area of ??Biological and Biomedical Sciences and 22% to Experimental Sciences, Exact and Environmental. These works, which reach an excellent scientific quality, represent a significant sample of the quality of the research that is being carried out in Spanish universities.

The Archimedes awards have a total of 104,500 euros, of which 100,000 euros are financed by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities.
