IBEC researcher selected by EC for ECSITE meeting

Nanoprobes and Nanoswitches postdoc Miquel Bosch is one of just six Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions fellows to be invited by the European Commission to participate in the annual ECSITE Conference 2017.

Taking place in Porto this week, the conference is the largest in Europe devoted to communicating science, attracting more than 1000 people. Miquel has been specially selected, along with five other MSCA fellows from all over Europe – out of a total of more than 100,000 – to take part at their stand at the event, where he will explain his research in a visual and attractive way, “Shedding light upon the brain”.

Miquel’s invitation to ECSITE came as a result of his appearance at the 28th European Contest for Young Scientists (EUCYS) in Brussels in 2016, where he presented his work on light-activated drugs using a laser-controlled ‘beetle’. The EC chose the best science communicators from among their MCSA fellows to man their impressive stand at this week’s conference, which features multimedia, hands-on demonstrations and visuals.
