These awards recognize the talent, effort and initiative of entrepreneurs who originate from the University of Salamanca.

With this award, the CEUSAL Chair, financed by the Bank of Santander, recognizes the best academic entrepreneurship works of USAL students, as well as their initiative, innovative capabilities and talent.

The 3000-euro funding received for these projects will be used to cover company formation expenses which, will additionally have the possibility of settling in USAL’s Scientific Park, with special co-working conditions during at least one year.

Furthermore, in the framework of the Chair of Entrepreneurs in the University of Salamanca (CEUSAL), directed by José Carlos Sánchez, CEUSAL awards have also been delivered in the category of Best Doctoral Thesis on Entrepreneurship, Best Master Thesis and Best Undergraduate Thesis.
