On the 19th of August 2018, the paper “Els materials que canviaran el món” was published in La Vanguardia. Many ICMAB researchers, including Anna Roig from the N&N group, were interviewed and explained the new materials they are developing at ICMAB. Anna talked about nanoparticles and bacterial nanocellulose. We encourage you to take a look at this nice communication!
The Spanish journal Diario Médico published an article about la Caixa INPhINIT program, highlighting the research topics of two fellows including Jan Grzelak from the NN Group. Jan explained the idea behind his project, the main goals and the current state of his research.
Between 14 and 16 May 2018, the bars of Barcelona will be full of science. Pint of Scienceis back in town!
Irene Anton, PhD researcher at the NN group will give a talk on “Medicina regenerativa: cas concret dels implants de pell” on Wednesday, 16 May in Alfa Bar (Gràcia). This talk will be part of the session “Ens hi juguem la pell“.
The program “A researcher in your classroom” brought Anna Roig, from the N&N group, to Lliçà d’Amunt, at Institut Lliçà (Tuesday, 3 February 2018), and the ICMAB researcher Agustín Mihi to Institut Dr. Puigvert de Sant Andreu in Barcelona (Wednesday, 4 February 2018). Both audiences were secondary school students of 4t ESO.
The “A researcher in your classroom” program, a part from showing the research in new nanomaterials and their applications to the students and their teachers, breaks the existing barriers between secondary schools and research centers: the students have the opportunity to meet scientists, learn how they became a scientist, and ask them questions about their job or life.
Aquest dijous dia 14 de setembre de 2017, l’Anna Laromaine ha donat la conferència inaugural a l’Institut de Cassà de la Selva donant el tret de sortida al nou curs. Com a antiga alumna de l’institut, ha presentat la investigació del grup N&N. També els ha animat a treballar per ser el que vulguin ser i fer realitat el títol de la xerrada: De l’INS Cassà to theworld!
Anna May, postdoc in our group, is from now on the new Communication & Outreach Officer at ICMAB. Anna holds a PhD in Materials Science and Technology and is currently studying a postgraduate course in Science Communication.
Nothing in science has any value to society if it is not communicated, and scientists are beginning to learn their social obligations. — Anne Roe (The Making of a Scientist (1953), 17)
This experience of two days gives the opportunity to scientists to see the dynamics of working in the media, with the aim that they learn to master the everyday situations, such as TV interviews, news writing, and press conferences, and learn to communicate science.
Apart from the audiovisual media, the course is also dedicated to radio programs, institutional communication, science communication agencies and science outreach on the Internet.
