The Governing Board of the Royal European Academy of Doctors-Barcelona 1914 (RAED) values the high academic level, the success of participation and the impact of its III International Act, the European Congress of Interdisciplinary Research, which under the title “La evolución de la ciencia en el siglo XXI” (The evolution of science in the 21st century) has been held in different Baltic cities between 15 and 22 July. Especially significant is the admission as honorary academicians of three new Nobel prize who confirm the institution as a leading European scientific benchmark. “This International Act marks a before and after in the history of the Royal Academy. We have taken a decisive step forward in the internationalization of our academic mission”, says the RAED president, Alfredo Rocafort.
