Our researcher Christian Blum, together with scientists Pedro Pinacho (University of the Concepción, Chile), Manuel López-Ibáñez (The University of Manchester, United Kingdom) and José A. Lozano (University of the Basque Country EHU / UPV), has won the Award SEIO-FBBVA 2021 in the category of "Best Methodological Contribution Operation Research" with its paper Construct, Merge, Solve & Adapt: A new general algorithm for combinatorial optimization. 

According to the jury: "This paper presents a new general metaheuristic framework with a clever inclusion of problem reductions (subproblems) and intermediate exact solutions. The results of these subproblems are used to improve the resolution process. This paper illustrates, through the use of interesting test cases, how the metaheuristic can be applied to a wide range of contexts".

The award is one of the most important national awards in operational research granted by the Spanish Society of Statistics and Operations Research (SEIO) and the BBVA Foundation.
