The jury emphasized the high quality of all the projects in the competition.
 
The web portal Divestadistica.com, dedicated to popularization of statistical science and developed by Era7 for the Andalusian School of Public Health, Granada, won an Honorable Mention in the category of Popular Science Projects, for the “Science in Action” Award Program. The jury gave this mention stating that the site "brings this science closer to the general public in a rigorous, fun and above all, useful way through a wonderful portal for statistical science outreach" In order to provide content and formats tailored for the general public, Era7 developed an interactive website that includes, among other curiosities a statistical laboratory, which allows users to experience the impact of applying well known statistical laws in various theoretical scenarios.
Science in Action is an initiative of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), Living Science (Ciencia Viva), the Royal Spanish Physical Society, the Geological Society of Spain and the Spanish Open University, aimed at bringing science and technology to the public. Among its activities, Science in Action holds an annual competition for Spanish or Portuguese teachers, researchers and popularizers willing to submit their projects. This year, the jury emphasized the high quality of all the projects in the competition, which, according to their statement, has made really difficult to choose the best and hindered their final decision. This adds a quality factor to the projects that have been awarded a prize by this initiative.
