Yesterday, the 4th of December, the Nature Award for Mentoring took place, the awards for four exemplary scientific tutors. It was held for the first time in Spain, under a panel of judges chaired by Josep Peñuelas and met at CREAF months ago. The winners are Lluís Torner, Margarita Salas, Carlos López-Otín and Carlos Belmonte. Congratulations!!
The Global Carbon Budget 2017 has analyzed carbon emission sources and sinks worldwide. This year the researcher Benjamin Stocker from CREAF has collaborated in the report contributing and preparing data about how the change in the use we give to the territory has affected CO₂ emissions.
Towards the call for general stop expected for tomorrow October 3, promoted by several organizations, the Direction and the Management of the CREAF with the consent of the works council, have decided to join the labor stoppage, suspending for tomorrow any activity. This is to protest against the brutal police violence that peaceful citizens suffered yesterday in Catalonia.
