The BBVA Foundation has announced its 2007 International Awards for Biodiversity Conservation, whose goal is to recognize the efforts of the scientists, conservation organizations and professionals working to protect our planet’s natural heritage.

This third edition of the BBVA Foundation Awards for Biodiversity Conservation takes in four prize categories, for world-class scientific research in Ecology and Conservation Biology, innovative actions to preserve biodiversity in Spain and Latin America, and the dissemination of knowledge and social awareness on the importance of protecting nature. The combined amount of these awards, at over one million euros, is the highest of its kind internationally.

The present call will be open until July 12 this year, with the award decision made public before January 12, 2008.

Recognizing contributions by scientists in any country that have significantly advanced the boundaries of knowledge in the fields of Ecology and Conservation Biology. A single prize of 500,000 euros will go to one or more scientists, up to a maximum of three, for a particularly significant contribution.

Nominations for this award must be presented by the authorities of universities or research institutions, national academies of science or scientific societies, or by scientists or experts of acknowledged repute in the fields of Ecology or Conservation Biology.

BBVA FOUNDATION AWARDS FOR BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION PROJECTS IN LATIN AMERICA AND SPAIN

Recognizing the direct execution of one or more innovative projects for the conservation or restoration of species, habitats and ecosystems in Latin America and Spain, carried out by non-profit organizations. Two awards will be granted, of 250,000 euros each, one for the best conservation project undertaken in Latin America and the other for the best conservation project in Spain.

Nominations should be presented by representatives of national, international or supranational institutions with competences in the area of nature conservation; office holders of scientific societies; scientists or experts of acknowledged repute in the field of Ecology or Conservation Biology; and national or international conservationist organizations.

BBVA FOUNDATION AWARD FOR KNOWLEDGE DISSEMINATION AND COMMUNICATION IN BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION

Recognizing the dissemination to society of knowledge and values concerning the natural environment and the importance of its conservation. A single, 80,000 euro prize will be granted to an individual of Spanish nationality or a public or private non-profit organization with its head offices in Spain.

Nominations should be presented by representatives of national or supranational institutions with competences in the area of nature conservation; office holders of scientific societies or associations of media professionals; scientists or experts of acknowledged repute in the field of Ecology or Conservation Biology; and national or international conservationist organizations.

Im Focus: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
