12th Live Research Fair a Success

Yet another successful year for the “Live Research” Fair. The organisers estimate that more than 1,500 people, both secondary school students as well as the general public, have visited stands at CREAL as well as at the IRB, IBEC, and The Catalan Paleontology Institute, among others.

“Live Research” is an exhibition of current research that aims to improve the scientific literacy of our society by opening research that is currently underway in Barcelona to the general public, and transmitting to the general population the characteristic features of the scientific method through the eyes of the researchers themselves.

Organised by Barcelona Science Park (PCB) in collaboration with the University of Barcelona, the “Live Research” Fair aims to communicate research in a coordinated way, displaying research projects from various R+D centres and institutes throughout the city.

This is a good opportunity for students and the general public to converse with researchers and resolve scientific enigmas through experimentation with the laboratory instruments used to conduct today’s most current and advanced research in diverse fields.

CREAL is grateful for the participation of David Donaire, Jeroen de Bont, Ariadna Curto, Albert Ambrós, Gemma Castaño, Carlos Hernandez-Ferrer, Gloria Carrasco, Montserrat de Castro, David Rojas, Cynthia Manzano, Marta Cirach, Natàlia Vilor, Marcos López, Tania Martínez and Nadia Espejo.
