Public engagement activities

<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.


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.
