Grupo Fertiberia welcomes submissions for ‘Best Doctoral Thesis on Agricultural Issues’

Published by , Deputy Editor
World Fertilizer,

Grupo Fertiberia has convened the XXV edition of the ‘Fertiberia Award for the Best Doctoral Thesis on Agricultural Issues,’ an initiative that it has promoted since 1996, with the aim of supporting talent and research, recognising the best academic works defended in Spanish universities and Portugal in the field of fertilization and agronomic activity.

Organised in collaboration with the Official College of Agricultural Engineers of the Center and the Canary Islands (COIACC), the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) will join for the first time.

The theses that compete for the award must deal with fertilization, soils, and their amendment, although works related to agricultural activity in general are also valued. Likewise, they must have obtained the highest qualification ‘cum laude’ in Spain, or its equivalent in Portugal. The nomination period will remain open until 08 May 2023.

The ‘Fertiberia Award for Best Doctoral Thesis’ is one of the best financially endowed agronomic research awards in Europe, with a first prize of €14 000 for the winner and a second prize of €5000.

Likewise, thesis directors are also recognised with two separate prizes of €8000 and €3000, respectively. In total, the contest awards prizes for a global value of €30 000.

Those interested must send a copy of their doctoral thesis in digital format together with the works published on it, their curriculum vitae, the certification from the centre that accredits their qualification, and a document referring to data protection, to Grupo Fertiberia.

Throughout the 24 editions convened to date, more than 500 doctoral theses from more than 50 universities and research centres have been presented, and prizes worth more than €500 000 have been awarded.
