<p>School kids</p>

We engage school kids at all levels of their education in our outreach activities to help foster their interest in and passion for science, and help them on the road to choosing a career in science and technology.

CCCB/Adrià Goula

'Science today for the medicine of the future' is a conference series within the Barcelona BioMed Perspectives programme, organized by IRB Barcelona and hosted by the CCCB (Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona). Its goal is to provide insight into current research developments and the challenges facing our scientists today in order to discover the medicine of tomorrow. 


IRB Barcelona organises regular science training workshops for high school teachers,, bringing them together with our scientists to investigate some of the current questions in molecular medicine and to get a hands-on look at the methodologies used. Scientists and teachers work together to develop and refine materials and resources to take back to the classroom

<p>crazy about medicine</p>

This flagship year-long mentoring programme brings 24 high school students in their first year of baccalaureate into the lab for hands-on learning. Theoretical and practical sessions are led by IRB Barcelona students on Saturday mornings, with a goal to fostering passion and vocation for scientific careers. Students also have the opportunity to do their high-school science project under the tutelage of an IRB Barcelona researcher.


We offer a summer internship programme for undergraduate students giving them an opportunity to participate hands-on in on-going research projects conducted by our young researchers at IRB Barcelona. A new programme, Maths4Life, provides an additional opportunity for motivated undergraduates and MSc students with a strong interest in mathematics and statistics.


IRB Barcelona strongly believes that scientific institutes have an obligation to inform the public of our work and to encourage an open dialogue about an area of science that is likely to have a huge impact on people’ s lives.

<p>PhD Students Symposium</p>

The PhD Student Symposium is an event organised biennially by IRB Barcelona PhD students. Young scientists are given the opportunity to participate in all the aspects of designing and managing a complex scientific event. Events have taken in place in 2009, 2011 and 2013 and the next one will be in 2015. Nobel-Prize winners and top scientists meet and discuss with younger researchers cutting-edge and interdisciplinary themes in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
