Aboutus slide 1

Making science accessible to the general public is becoming increasingly important and is gradually becoming one of the requirements of any scientifc research project funded by governments and institutions.

All members of the international scientifc community have a role to play in communicating their results and breakthroughs, from the time they are PhD students right the way through their entire research career. And this is why we have included dissemination training activities for young scientists within the framework of the 2019 Passion for Knowledge popular science festival.

A group of PhD students will engage in a series of activities aimed at enriching their experience and developing their communication skills:

  • Meet the Professor

    Meetings will be organised with Nobel laureates and other distinguished scientists to refect on science and its social aspects.

  • Popular science through a blog

    The students will also write a series of popular science articles on their work, to be published on the blog Mapping Ignorance, a benchmark English-language portal which features news and articles on cutting-edge scientific research.

Moreover, the young scientists will also participate actively in the evening keynote talks, held in the Victoria Eugenia Theatre.
