Since its foundation in 1973, a series of Awards have been made each year by the University-Enterprise Foundation of Madrid to organizers and individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the realization of projects involving cooperation between enterprises and university departments. The 1993 Awards, covering eligible activities undertaken in 1992, will be presented after a selection procedure taking place in Madrid. This year, to coincide with the twentieth anniversary of the Foundation, the University-Enterprise Awards will be organized at a European level (including university departments and enterprises based either in Community Member States or in EFTA countries) with the support of the Commission of the European Communities and the COMNET Association (Community Network for European Education and Training). COMNET is a European Association now composed of 117 University-Enterprise Training Partnerships (UETPs, created in the context of the COMETT programme), or similar organizations. It is the largest European network concerned with multilateral exchanges and contacts in the field of education and training in advanced technology, with activities extending from student exchanges to the marketing of products. The selecting Jury for the University-Enterprise Foundation Awards will be chaired by Commission Vice-President Professor A. Ruberti. Entries to be considered for an Award must be presented (in an official letter of support) by a local or regional Chamber of commerce and Industry, an entrepreneurial organization, or a UETP. University departments must be presented by a UETP or by the Rectorate of their university.
