Science and Nature award

The top two general science journals - Nature and Science - have received a joint award for excellence in science communication from Spain's crown prince. 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. The award consists of a certificate, a sculpture especially designed for the Foundation by Joan Miró, and 50,000 Euros.
