The 3 finalists of the 4th Roger Léron Award are here!

The jury made its call, and the 3 finalists of the Roger Léron Award 2018 are finally known: congratulations to Andy Bull (UK), José Rámon Peran Gonzalez (ES), and Gérard Savatier (FR). The final result will be disclosed during the Ceremony on 10 October at the Palais des Académies, in Brussels.

This year, the nominees were particularly impressive in their achievements and commitments. As inspiring individuals, they all had a significant impact in their region. The jury had a hard time selecting the finalists.

Andy Bull is an ‘early adopter’ of new sustainable technologies and ideas who saw the potential of on-farm anaerobic digestion in Mid Wales. Experienced in accessing EU funding and running EU funded projects, he could influence policy at local and national levels, build awareness and confidence with Welsh farmers and landowners.

Dr. José Ramón Perán Gonzalez is an emeritus professor at Valladolid University, where he manages the Department of Systems Engineering and Automatics. Because he has worked in the private sector for thirty years, he could see the existing gap between the Academy and Industry and to solve the industrial problems, he promoted applied research and innovation.

Gérard Savatier is one of the creators of ASDER, the Savoy association for the development of renewable energies. He contributed to the development of communications for the local communities, and the general public at the local, regional, national, and European level.

You can discover the 6 other nominees here.
