“For my family, and for me personally, it has always been very pleasant to maintain the institutional support for the British Hispanic Foundation because it reminds us of the good relationship Spain has with the United Kingdom.

It is a living memory for us that has existed for generations. And we are pleased that it continues to be encouraged as a bridge between the two countries.

Within it, the Queen Victoria Eugenia Chair is especially important because it keeps collaboration and excellence alive in the academic world for the new generations ”.
