On November 3, 1999 the Generalitat de Catalunya granted to CIMNE the Narcís de Monturiol Plate Award for Scientific and Technological Merit:

  • For its contribution to the development of new methods for analysis and design for products and processes in engineering.
  • For the fostering of cooperation between industry and university research groups.
  • For many training activities and the promotion of science and technology at the international level.

Special mention to the Ciutat de Barcelona Award 1999
The city of Barcelona awarded CIMNE a Special Mention to the Ciutat de Barcelona Award, 1999, in the category of Technological Research for the work carried out by Drs. P. Roca, M. Cervera, and E. Oñate on the modeling and structural analysis of the Barcelona Cathedral.

IST Award to the best product of the Information Society Technologies Programme of European Commission (EC).
The EC granted in November 2001 the IST Award to the pre/ post processor system GiD developed at CIMNE.

AINE 2010 Award
CIMNE was distinguished with the 2010 AINE Award, as the most innovative organization related to the naval sector the Award in promoted by the Asociación de Ingenieros Navales de España (AINE).

Award Duran i Farrell for Research and Technology Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2004
The Award was delivered to CIMNE scientists Dr. Oñate and Dr. García for their work entitled: “Development of a new finite element code for the hydrodynamic study of vessels. Aplications to the design of sailing ships for the America Cup race”.

Ciutat de Barcelona 2002 Award in Technological Research
On February 11 2003, the Ciutat de Barcelona award in Technological Research was awarded to the CIMNE research team formed by Eugenio Oñate, Ramon Ribó, Enrique Escolano, Miquel Pasenau and Jorge Suit Pérez, for the development of the GID system, an innovative and userfriendly graphic interface that allows the geometric modeling and visualization of the results of numerical simulations.
