CSIC has paid the anual tribute to all of its employees with 25 and 50 years of service. This year, two researchers form Geosciences Barcelona are among the honored employees: Joaquina Álvarez-Marron and Jaume Vergés.
Due to the Coronavirus restrictions, this year the traditional badge delivery ceremony has been virtually held. CSIC has made a recognition video to pay tribute to researchers, technicians and support personal.
Rosa Menéndez, president of the CSIC, opens the video with some words of thanks to the honored employees highlighting the role played by the CSIC in a year marked by the Coronavirus pandemic.
"We shall not resign to suffer the ravages of the pandemic, we're fighting and we shall continue fighting against it, with all the weapons available, with all the weapons at our disposal. This situtation has to finish, and it will arrive to an end with the effort and energy from all of us", said Menéndez. The video was presented last 15th of December during the annual meeting of CSIC institute directors and representatives .
