On 13 February, on the occasion of the RoboCity2030-DIH-CM management committee meeting, a tribute was paid to professors Rafael Aracil (UPM) and Manuel Armada (CSIC). In this tribute, a plaque was presented as a sign of admiration for their professional career and gratitude for their involvement in the programme since its inception. The plaque was collected by Rafael Aracil and Pablo Gonzalez (on behalf of Manuel Armada, who was unable to attend the event).
