Encouraging scientific culture

One of the strategic objectives of the PRBB research centres is to encourage scientific culture. We want to transmit scientific advances and knowledge to society and awaken inspiration and curiosity in young people and future scientists.

The Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB) is part of the FECYT network of Scientific Culture and Innovation Units (UCC+i) and a member of Barcelona City Hall’s Educational Innovation Council.

PRBB Open Day

#OpenPRBB 2024: We are PRBB. We are scientists.

Every year, at the beginning of October, we open the doors of the Park. Scientists of the PRBB centres explain what they do, how they do it and where they do it. We invite the visitors to spend an exciting morning, having fun with science and getting to know a great infrastructure of the city and those who work in it.

This 2024, we look forward to seeing you next October 5 ! The open day programme includes guided tours of the laboratories, workshops and scientific talks. Volunteers from the Park dedicate an entire Saturday morning to show what lies behind this scientific infrastructure.

This science outreach event is only possible thanks to the collaboration of the PRBB centres and Barcelona City Council.

PRBB Award

We want your talent!

At the PRBB we want to boost the careers of those high school students who do their research work in the field of life sciences and biomedicine.

The UPF Faculty of Health and Life Sciences and the PRBB have been awarding the PRBB Health and Life Sciences Research Prize every year since 2005, honouring and showcasing the five best pieces of work in biological sciences.

Educational activities

Awakening scientific minds

The PRBB organises various activities and workshops for primary, ESO and High School students during the school year (September-July) with the collaboration of the PRBB research centres.

Dimarts de Ciència (Science Tuesdays)

Cycle of talks for students aged between 16 and 18 that aims to bring them closer to topics in life sciences and biomedicine, that affect society. Face-to-face and online sessions.

Science journalists

Activity that aims to bring the world of science in a didactic way to students in the second cycle of primary school (4th and 5th primary school). We want to encourage thinking and curiosity for scientific work through the preparation of questions and conducting an interview with a researcher. Face-to-face and online sessions.

→ Genigma (CRG)
Citizen science to explore the human genome.

→ CitieS Health Toolkit (ISGLOBAL)
Collection of adaptable tools to engage communities.

→ Melanogaster Catch the Fly (IBE)
The first citizen science network on adaptive genomics.

→ Biohacking (with the collaboration of Hangar)
Knowledge production between art and biotechnology.

→ Stick out your tongue (CRG)
