Science earns top honor from Spain's Crown Prince

The journal Science was named 4 July to receive one of the world's most prestigious awards from Spain's Crown Prince, recognizing excellence in science communications.

The Prince of Asturias Foundation, formed in 1980 under the presidency of His Royal Highness, heir to the throne of Spain, honors scientific, technical, cultural, social and humanitarian work carried out internationally by individuals, groups or organizations, across eight categories. (See www.fpa.es.)

Science was jointly selected, along with the journal Nature, to receive this year's Communication and Humanities Award from the foundation. Spain's Crown Prince will bestow the award during a ceremony set to take place in Spain later this year in October.

Previous Communication Award winners have included Umberto Eco, George Steiner, Jean Daniel, Vclav Havel, Ryszar Kapuscinski, Universidad Centroamericana Jos Simen Caas, The British Council, and the National Geographic Society.

Within other award categories, previous winners have included Nelson Mandela, Mikhail Gorvachev, Yitzhak Rabin, Yasser Arafat, Mario Soares, Joan Massague, Robert Gallo, Luc Montagnier, Simone Veil, Woody Allen, Placido Domingo, Maya Plisetskaya, Sebastiao Salgado, Susan Sontag, John Glenn, and others.

"Authoritative, objective scientific communications across borders is essential as science and technology are becoming increasingly integral to global prosperity, yet also increasingly politicized in certain regions," said Science Editor-in-Chief Dr. Donald Kennedy. "We are delighted and deeply honored that our journal's contributions to public discourse on science and technology have been recognized by Spain's Crown Prince Foundation."

The award consists of a certificate, a sculpture especially designed for the Foundation by Joan Mir, and 50,000 Euros.
