The Academy of Sciences of the Region of Murcia has organized an act of recognition for regional science in which it will pay tribute to the physicist and astronomer from Cartagena Rafael Rebolo, director of the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands, in addition to awarding the Seneca Foundation, in honor of its 25th anniversary for its important work in promoting and supporting R+D+i, and the Research and Development Project in Secondary Schools (IDIES), an educational initiative to initiate research whose main goal is to show freshmen of high school what research is and how it is practiced.

During the event, which will be held today, Friday, at 6:30 pm at the Aula de Cultura of the Fundación Cajamurcia, Rafael Rebolo will host the conference “Challenges in Exploring the Universe: From the Big Bang to Planetary Systems”.

Rafael Rebolo, doctor ‘honoris causa’ of the Polytechnic University of Cartagena, is also a member of the Max Planck Society and Corresponding Academician of the Royal Academy of Exact, Physical and Natural Sciences of Spain. The honor he receives from the Academy of Sciences of the Region – of which he is an honorary academic – is a recognition of a professional career of international importance for which he has received prestigious awards such as the Rey Jaime I Research Award (2001), the Jules Janssen Award of the French Astronomical Society (2014), the Iberdrola Science and Technology Award (2000) or the Blas Cabrera National Research Award (2018).

The president of the Academy, the biologist and professor of ecology Ángel Pérez Ruzafa, explained that “with this law we want to recognize regional science on three levels: a scientist of maximum international relevance, an institution that is an essential support for the development of scientific knowledge and an initiative that has promoted the scientific vocation of high school students and facilitated their integration into research teams at universities and research centers”.
