Great success of the 1st Online Edition of Expominer 2020

The ICMAB participated between 14 and 27 November 2020 at the 1st Online Edition of Expominer, the exhibition of minerals, fossils and jewelry. The Online Expomine was formed by a cycle of talks and workshops called MinerMat2020 in the framework of the Science Week 2020. We participated with one outreach talk given by Mariona Coll on Solar Energy, and two outreach videos by Anna Cespi, Judith Oró and Roberta Ceravola about techniques to characterize crystals and sand.

  • The "Matheroes" project selected as an innovative action by FECYT

    22 February 2021 156 hit(s) Awards
    We are happy to announce that FECYT has selected the "Matheroes: Supermaterials, the heroes of the future" project to be part of the eighth edition of the catalog of "Innovative practices in scientific culture".  The "Innovative practices in scientific culture" catalog includes a selection of activities that FECYT (Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología) has considered as unique in science outreach and science communicatin. It includes innovative and high quality actions that highlight for some of their aspects: their new formats, the strategic objectives they pursue, the specific public they are aimed at, their high impact on the participants, the invomvement of scientific and non-scientific agents, to name a few.
