Public engagement activities
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.
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
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.
Artist in Residence
IRB Barcelona's Artist in Residency programme aims to connect artists with an interest in interdisciplinary science to the wide range of research, scientists, data and infrastructure available at the Institute. Its goal is to provide time and space for reflection and inspiration from both sides.
