The Spanish Academy of Radio Arts and Sciences is an institution which aims to promote radio in Spain and represents the interests of radio professionals as well as providing training to existing and future radio professionals.

The academy promoted the establishment of the World Radio Day by UNESCO. Its chairman, Jorge Álvarez, asked UNESCO, in 2008, for this international day of celebration for all broadcasters and radio listeners around the world. Finally, on November 3, 2011, the 36th Conference General of UNESCO unanimously approved the Spanish proposal and designated February 13 as World Radio Day[1]<ref>UNESCO document of World Radio Day
