International University Menéndez Pelayo (UIMP)
The partnership between Viesgo and the UIMP in Santander, which dates back to the start of this century, is the best indication of our dual commitment to society: disseminating and informing society of the energy sector and fostering cultural and academic development as an agent of change.
Viesgo’s support for this prestigious university focuses on two main projects. On one hand, we take part in its summer courses, which are the oldest in Spain, organising an annual meeting on the electricity sector in which famous national and international experts take part. On the other, Viesgo sponsors the Menéndez Pelayo International Award, which has been given to celebrities in literary or scientific creation, such as Mario Vargas Llosa and Mario Benedetti.
