His most iconic novel, "Don Quixote" is the most edited and translated book in all Literature History, just behind The Bible.

The Spacial Event Stations will hold the prefix AN400, which has never been issued before.

The Quarry Life Award is an international research competition for the promotion and education about biodiversity in quarries.  A mining site provides a great variety of landscapes and habitats that present low disturbances from human activities. These unique habitats promote exceptional local flora and fauna. HeidelbergCement through the Quarry Life Award and its projects, aims to raise the knowledge of the biological value of mining sites and contribute to further enhancing it. In more than 1000 quarries and pits worldwide HeidelbergCement is committed to managing biodiversity during and after extraction by promoting exceptional local flora and fauna. In the 3rd edition of the Quarry Life Award we continue to raise awareness of the biological value of mining sites and together finding new ways of further enhancing it.


Quarry Life Award je međunarodno istraživačko takmičenje koje se organizira radi promocije i obrazovanja o biodiverezitetu na kamenolomima.  Lokacije kamenoloma bogate su mnogostrukim pejzažima i staništima na kojima nema većih smetnji od ljudskih aktivnosti.  Ova jedinstvena staništa promoviraju izvanrednu lokalnu floru i faunu. HeidelbergCement kroz takmičenje Quarry Life Award i svoje projekte nastoji povećati znanje o biološkoj vrijednosti kamenoloma i doprinijeti povećanju te vrijednosti. U više od 1000 kamenoloma širom svijeta HeidelbergCement predano radi na upravljanju biodiverzitetom tokom i nakon ekstrakcije na način da promovira izuzetnu lokalnu floru i faunu. Kroz treću ediciju takmičenja Quarry Life Award nastavljamo širiti informiranost o biološkoj vrijednosti lokacija kamenoloma i zajedno pronalazimo nove načine za njeno poboljšanje.
