Fundación Endesa and the UIB create the Guillem Colom Casasnovas Chair, that will focus in palaeontology and micropalaeontology

Rafael Miranda, president of Fundación Endesa, and Dr. Montserrat Casas, Rector of the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB), have signed an agreement to create the Guillem Colom Casasnovas Chair. The Guillem Colom Casasnovas Chair will study micropalaeontology and palaeontology, and the specialties that contribute to the development of these sciences: stratigraphy, geology, oceanography, palaeoecology, and sedimentology, as well as any one another aspect of natural sciences.

This chair is born as an initiative of the Social Council of the UIB to pay tribute to the scientist Guillem Colom Casasnovas (Mallorca, 1900-1993). It also has the aim to continue with the scientific investigations of Guillem Colom Casasnovas, who put the Balearic Islands into the forefront of international research.

This Chair also will continue coordinating the study and publication of Guillem Colom Casasnovas’ scientific work under the direction of UIB’s Guillem Mateu Mateu, and collaboration of researchers at the universities of the Balearic Islands, Valencia and the Basque Country.

The signature of the agreement has been attended by Dr. Felicià Fuster, president of the Social Council of the UIB and president of the Council Adviser of Endesa in the Balearic Islands; Dr. Lluís Pomar, Prof. of the Department of Sciences of the Earth at the UIB; and Dr. Guillem Mateu, Emeritus professor of the UIB.

Endesa and the UIB collaborate since 2008 with the Endesa Network of Energetic Innovation Chair, created to train students in the generation, transport, distribution, and commercialisation of electric energy.
