(Zaragoza. July 26, 2022). The University of Zaragoza and the company Progressum Energy Developments join forces to create the Progressum Chair in Energy Sustainability at the University of Zaragoza. The creation agreement was signed on July 14 by the Vice President for Technology Transfer and Innovation at the University of Zaragoza, Gloria Cuenca Bescós, and the CEO of Progressum Energy Developments, Marco Antonio Macías Rodríguez.
This chair was born with the aim of generating research, development and knowledge transfer in renewable energies in relation to biodiversity.

To this end, the chair will promote and sponsor research studies and reports, student internships within the framework of Erasmus Rural, and will organize communication and training activities and discussion forums (conferences, seminars, courses, awards, scholarships…) among other actions.
Dr. María Martínez Martínez, Professor of Civil Law at the Faculty of Law and director of the University Institute of Environmental Sciences (IUCA) will be in charge of this new chair.
