IBE (CSIC-UPF): Launch of a new edition of Inspiraciència, a creative writing contest aimed at weaving science with literature


News from IBE (CSIC-UPF)


Participants are invited to submit short stories written in Spanish, Catalan, Galician or Basque with a maximum length of 800 words, until May the 17th. Needless to say, these tales must be inspired by science. There are two categories of participants: young (for people 12 – 17 years old) and adults (18 years old onwards). Since this year is Richard Feynman’s 100th anniversary, a secondary prize will be awarded to any tale, written in any of the four languages, and in any of the categories, that deals with the scientist and/or his scientific legacy.

Inspiraciència is a project by the delegation of the CSIC in Catalonia, and many other scientific institutions are involved in its organisation.
