The UB promotes a social interest in science and increasing interest in scientific careers
Researchers of the University de Barcelona participate in disseminating research results through activities aimed at promoting an interest in science among non-specialised audiences of all ages. The programme ‘La UB divulga’, by the Scientific Culture and Innovation Unit (UCC+i) of the UB, covers scientific dissemination activities at the University of Barcelona.
Among its main actions are the Science Festival, an annual event that brings research staff into contact with the general public. In addition, the unit carries out activities for primary and secondary schools, such as ‘Camins infinits’ (Infinite Paths) or the Crystallization at School Contest, and other actions such as Arque UB or the ‘La caravana de la ciència’ (The caravan of science).
