The National Academy of Engineering of Uruguay announces the contest “Eladio Dieste: example of technical innovation in Uruguay”, as a tribute to one of the founding members of the organization and with the aim of highlighting his technological innovations, the result of his talent and passion as well as a life story.

The ANIU will grant the winning work of the contest a prize consisting of the sum of 200,000 Uruguayan pesos, in addition to paying for the production of an audiovisual provided that the winning material is suitable for a presentation of this type.

The academic committee that will act as a jury will have three members, who will be members of the ANIU or guests of recognized international prestige.
