Connecting science & society
Communications & Scientific culture
IDIBELL's Communication and Scientific Culture Unit aims to improve public understanding of science focusing on the institute, its researchers and its value to society.
The unit carries out its mission through a wide range of initiatives and activities aimed at different audiences, including researchers, journalists and the media, politicians, students, science professors, the general public and, of course, members of IDIBELL.
Digital & social media
IDIBELL in motion
Science & Society
IDIBELL launched its first annual fundraising campaign, which in 2019 was dedicated to cancer research, a disease that in Spain is the leading cause of death in men and the second in women. This fundraising initiative culminated in a gala dinner attended by celebrities, business people and the researchers themselves, who took the opportunity to explain some of their projects.
The campaign was advertised with a video showing that everybody could be a hero by donating money and helping scientists. This video was shared in the social media but also shown in the public transport or the local TV.
