In Focus...

To José Luis Montalvá Conesa
(1944-2015)

Much time has passed since he told us that imperfection is the first step towards excellence. From the moment that these words left an impression on us, many have been the times that we have reflected on the fact that there are moments in our professional careers in which, thinking about what one wants to achieve, times slips through our fingers. And this is precisely what makes what we achieve more important than what we would have liked to achieve.
José Luis Montalvá, who in the UPV was friendly known as “the boss”, was founder of Forum UNESCO University and Heritage in 1995, and its director since then until 2009, when from his maturity he was able to enjoy the perspective of what had been already done. The reach and potential that the Forum UNESCO University and Heritage international network currently has would not have been a reality without José Luis’ dedication. We cannot repay the debt we have with him, but we can show how grateful we feel.
For all this, we dedicate this newsletter to him, in remembrance of his savoir-faire during the 14 years at the head of Forum, and as a tribute to the professional and personal heritage he has left to the ones who have been lucky to work with him.
Thank you José Luis
