‘I would like to highlight that we have included Gastronomy and Biotechnology Olympiads, which have been designed at UCAM HiTech, for the first time. With this type of event, apart from bringing students closer to the academic world, we try to awaken scientific vocations and promote the spirit of work and healthy competition to achieve great goals’, said Estrella Núñez, UCAM vice-rector of Research. For her part, Isabel Fortea, CARM director general of Universities and Research, highlighted the excellent response to the event and the fact that it promotes scientific vocation.
