230 different activities with more than 430 sessions from 160 institutions made up the 12th edition of the Barcelona Science Festival, which was a meeting point between research, innovation and society. This year over 20,000 people got to know the latest discoveries as well as classic and fundamental questions in science.
Public engagement professionals together with CRG researchers organised five different activities addressed to all types of audiences. “All our activities are based on the dialogue between science and society. The Barcelona Science Festival brings us a fantastic opportunity to share our science and knowledge but also to be open to new ideas and questions from the general public. This two-sided conversation is essential if we want our research to be receptive to the demands of our society”, stated Marta Solís, Public Engagement Officer at the CRG.
Other PRBB centres, like the DCXES-UPF, IBE and ISGlobal, also participated in the Science Festival.
