The “Thesis in 3 Minutes” competition aims to present research topics in an accessible manner to society and, at the same time, promote the communication skills of researchers and raise awareness of the importance of disseminating their activities well. Ana will be up against nine other finalists from centers including the UAB, the UPF and the UB, as well as from institutions in Malaga and Cantabria.

The JCCC event held at the Campus Nord, aims to create a forum where Mexican students in Catalonia can gather to share experiences and learn about their different areas of knowledge. It is organized by Mexico’s Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACyT) and the UPC, and is supported by the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre, the Mexican Consulat, the Seminary of Mexican Culture in Barcelona and the Mexican Talent Network Abroad.
