The jury awarded the 1st CRiEDO Award in Innovation and Development of Educational and Training Centres to the Tarlatana School, located in Sabadell's Can Puiggener neighbourhood, for its “well-founded pedagogic project, in continuous improvement and conducted with the educational community in a highly complex environment”.

The award acknowledges the good educational tasks of this early childhood and primary education centre, as well as the effects the "Escoles Vives" — of which this school is a member — are creating within the Catalan education system, helping “to establish learning methods that are creative, holistic, significant and more respective with people and the social and natural environments, with a high local impact and greatly dedicated to working with vulnerable groups”. Thus, according to the jury, the Tarlatana School stands out for its “promotion of a live education linked to improvements in social cohesion and educational results".

In addition to the Tarlatana School's directive team, an honourable mention was given to the European Forum of Education Administrators of Catalonia for their “more than 35 years in promoting and developing educational administration and management processes, as well as for their national and international projection”.
