Today Spain’s Severo Ochoa Centres of Excellence – including IBEC – and the María de Maeztu Units of Excellence are at the CNIO in Madrid for 100xCiencia.3, the annual event of the SOMMa alliance.
This year’s 100xCiencia is devoted to ‘Bringing Science and Society’, and IBEC is participating with a poster about its outreach activities.
As well as representatives from the research centres and units, the event is being attended by politicians, journalists and civic figures to debate about the different aspects of how and why science is important for society.
