OUTREACH

Our group is committed to bring science closer to people. To this end, we participate in different kinds of activities such as seminars and workshops. From time to time, we collaborate with the media and we also organize outreach activities in collaboration with primary and secondary schools.

A project from the N&N group at the R+D CSIC newsletter

Anna Laromaine, from the N&N group, Núria Sánchez-Coll, from CRAG (Center for Research in Agricultural Genomics) and other co-workers have developed an effective method for plant tissue regeneration that involves the use of a bacterial nanocellulose. This study appears on the monthly newsletter from the Consejo Superior de Investigciones Cientificas (CSIC) together with the work from other ICMAB researchers. This project called PLANT HEALING was funded by Fons Europeus de Desenvolupament Regional, Departament d’Empresa I Coneixement de la Generalitat de Catalunya with 20.000€.
