The Premios Nacionales de Investigación recognize the merit of those Spanish researchers who do outstanding professional work of international relevance in one of 10 research areas and scientific fields, and who make significant contributions to the advancement of science. The award includes a cash prize of 30,000 € for each of the recipients.

Galí joins two previous recipients of this prize in the BSE research community: Andreu Mas-Colell (UPF and BSE) won it in 2006, and Salvador Barberà in 2010.
