Fotowatio Renewable Ventures (FRV), was present during the Opening Ceremony that IE University held to celebrate the new academic year 2017-2018. This act marked the beginning of the academic year for Amina Adwan, the latest student awarded with FRV’s ‘Young Talented Leaders’ Scholarship.

The event is the first contact between students and the faculty of IE University, and FRV wanted to be part of it as well. Daniel Sagi-Vela, CFO of FRV and Javier Huergo, CIO and Treasurer of ALJ Energy, attended as FRV representatives  to meet Amina and accompany her in this special occasion, stressing FRV’s support to IE’s Foundation and the ‘Young Talented Leaders’ Scholarship program.

The scholarships are given as part of FRV’s commitment to developing communities in which it operates. To this end, Amina was awarded the scholarship due to FRV’s 65 MW dc Mafraq II Project in Jordan. During the morning ceremony and the cocktail that followed afterwards, FRV’s team had the chance to meet Amina and share with her the emotion and enthusiasm of this new phase of her academic and personal development together with IE’s authorities including Rafael Benjumea, Chairman of IE University Foundation Advisory Board; Javier de Cendra, Dean of IE’s Law School and Geoffroy Gérard; Managing Director of IE’s Foundation.
