The final day in Madrid began at the prestigious Elcano Royal Institute for International and Strategic Studies. Meeting with Senior Analyst Miguel Otero-Iglesias and Analyst Ilke Toygür, the group discussed Spain’s role in a post-Brexit Europe and future alternatives to the European Union. ACCIONA Director’s Joaquín Mollinedo, José Eugenio Salarich, Elisa Preto, and Pierre Buffet hosted the group for lunch and discussed ACCIONA’s leading role in global renewable energy investment and sustainability. The day ended with a tour of the beautiful campus of IESE Business School and an overview of Spanish digital innovation by Professor Julián Villanueva. The group now heads to Bilbao. Hasta luego Madrid!
