Specialisterne Spain, awarded with the Premio Muncunill

May 10, 2023

Last May 4, the iconic Teatre Principal de Terrassa hosted the award ceremony of the seventh edition of the​ Muncunill Innovation Awards, an event that recognizes the work of people, companies, or projects that are committed to innovation as an integral model. They are all examples of innovation, social responsibility, and ambition.

These awards are promoted by the City Council of Terrassa. The city of Terrassa has positioned itself as one of the capitals of innovation in Catalonia and the rest of Spain. It is the result of intense and rigorous work, as well as a spirit of consensus, the sum of efforts and skills in the service of a great objective of the city: the promotion of innovation from a global and transversal perspective. On the other hand, Lluís Muncunill (1861-1931), is the most important modernist architect in Terrassa, being a reference in the application of the modernist style in industrial architecture.

The awards were divided into four categories, with 10 nominees each. In the Local Category, the award went to the Terrassa company Bio2coat. A product that boosts economic benefit, reducing losses and the rejection rate in fruit and vegetable production.

The national business category recognized Able Human Motion for creating the first lightweight and accessible robotic exoskeleton that enables people with mobility difficulties to walk again.

In the national cultural category, Pep Salazar, who reminded us that “Innovation is adding another layer to tradition”, won the prize with OFFF Digital Impact.

Finally, Specialisterne Spain won the national social category award, and Doctor Mercè Boada, a renowned neurologist, was awarded with The Muncunill Honorary Award. It was an honor and a privilege to hear her wise words with the conviction that without innovation, there is no future.

We are grateful to the organization for its choice among 9 other initiatives since, in the words of Jose Segundo, director of Specialisterne Spain “this award belongs to all the employees who make up the organization and helps us to renew our enthusiasm and continue working to provide more training and employment opportunities for people with autism, a group with an 80% of unemployment rate”.

Congratulations to all the entities awarded!

We now attach the video of the ceremony.
