Two projects developed in the School of Medicine of the University of Navarra have been distinguished with the research awards at subject for occupational safety, organized by the department University, Innovation and Digital Transformation. The Councilor Patricia Fanlo presented the awards on April 29, in a ceremony held at the auditorium of the association of the Navarra Industry (AIN), in Cordovilla, which also presented a study on innovation and research in subject occupational safety, coinciding with the commemoration this Sunday of World Day for Safety and Health at work.

During his speech, Fanlo pointed out that occupational safety is a "strategic issue" for the Government of Navarra, and that "the application of research and technology in this area allows us not only to prevent accidents, but also to create healthier and more productive work environments".

In the same way, the counselor stressed the need to provide it with a "holistic or integral" vision, in which companies, research centers and the Administration itself have a shared responsibility, taking advantage of the innovative ecosystem that we have in Navarra, represented by the Navarra System of research and development+i (SINAI). "The human and economic costs of not acting are too high to ignore and, therefore, it is essential to promote public-private partnership spaces that accelerate the response to occupational hazards, increasing its effectiveness and efficiency," he said.


In the modality of work of end of Degree (TFG), the research of Daniel Bruque, recently graduate of the University of Navarra, was distinguished for "Evolution of severity in COVID-19 disease throughout the pandemic at the University of Navarra and at Clínica Universidad de Navarra", award endowed with 1000 euros.

In addition, in the category of scientific publications, which is endowed with 1000 euros, the jury awarded the article graduate "Effect of a nutrition intervention on mediterranean diet adherence among firefighters", carried out in the framework of a collaborative project with Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health. Dr. Alejandro Fernández Montero, professor of the Clinical training Unit and specialist in Medicine at work of the Clínica Universidad de Navarra, is one of the main authors in this study.
