Elías Pérez, Quobis CEO, wins prestigious “MIT TR35 SPAIN” award

The TR35 Spain Prize is awarded annually by Technology Review.es, MIT’s online technology publication in Spanish. The object of this prize is to give worldwide recognition to the early achievements of outstanding young researchers whose work has the potential to transform the world of technology and business in the near future. Ten Prizes are awarded each year to individuals under the age of 35 chosen from distinguished candidates living in Spain.

This year, Elias Perez Carrera, Quobis’ CEO, has been awarded with one of the TR35 Spain Prize, along with one nine young spanish researches, for the innovations performed at Quobis in the field of secure communications and identity management in NGN networks.

According to the judges at TR35, he advantage of IdentityCall when facing other competitors is its capacity to combine an element that the person who calls possesses (a digital certificate or a smartcard, like the electronic ID) and an element he or she knows (PIN number). “This guarantees the caller’s identity and the ‘non-repudiation’ in the context of new generation telecommunication networks”, states Pérez.

Previous winners of theTR35 Global Edition include Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the cofounders of Google; Mark Zuckerberg, the cofounder of Facebook, or Jonathan Ive, the chief designer of Apple. Needless to say, Technology Review has an excellent track record in predicting innovative technologies.

The official ceremony for TR35 Spain Prize will take place at EmTech Spain on November, where the 10 winners will have the opportunity of giving our pitch to the audience.
