The Governing Board of the Royal European Academy of Doctors-Barcelona 1914 (RAED) welcomes the admission of the Spanish Royal Academy of Economic and Financial Sciences (RACEF) in the Institute of Spain, approved last Friday by the Council of Ministers, and particularly congratulates its president, Jaime Gil Aluja, who is also a member of the RAED. With an historical and fruitful relationship, both academies share 23 academicians and their collaboration has been as intense as productive over time. The RAED is an associate academy of the Institute of Spain since 2013.
