The 4th edition of the UNE Academic Award is open for nominations


The Spanish Association for Standardization, UNE, has announced the fourth edition of its award for academic work related to standardisation. All applications must be received before midnight on 15 September 2021.

The intention of this prize is to promote among university students an understanding of the importance of technical standards which are so important in commerce, legislation and in the professional field.

Similarly, it is hoped that the prize will serve to raise awareness among organisations of the convenience of participating in standardisation, as well as to stimulate creative ideas that relate to and are supported by standards.

The award is promoted by UNE, the Spanish standardisation body in collaboration with the UNE University Education Forum on Standardisation, made up of representatives from several Spanish universities.

The prize is open to students from any Spanish university who have not won in previous editions and consists of the following categories:

  • Final Bachelor's Degree project
  • Final Master's Degree project

The prizes

For each of the categories, a first prize, a second prize and up to a maximum of two additional finalists will be awarded as follows:

  • A first prize consisting of a cheque of €1,000 and the option to choose from among the following:

o A 50% discount on the cost of the AENOR "Master's Degree in Integrated Quality, Environment and Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems".

o Free enrolment in any course in AENOR' s training catalogue of up to 21 hours maximum.

  • A second prize of €500 and free enrolment in any course from the AENOR training catalogue of a maximum of 14 hours.
  • A cheque for €200 for the finalists.
  • Both winners and finalists will receive a diploma from UNE.
  • Winners and runners-up will be invited to participate in one of UNE's standardisation training courses.

Final Degree Projects (TFG) and Master's Degree Projects (TFM) approved at any Spanish university between 15 September 2019 and 15 September 2021 are eligible.
