On September 12th and 13th in Barcelona the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences of Pompeu Fabra University and the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB) will host the 6th edition of Campus Gutenberg, an open scientific communication summer school that has become an unmissable meeting point among people involved in science communication, science journalism and those generally interested in the relationship of science and society.
Several activities will take place to promote dialogue between speakers and attendees. Such as workshops where participants will learn new techniques of scientific communication through experimentation and participation, ideas labs to share initiatives and exchange opinions regarding innovative projects and debates for specific topics. A “beer for science” event will close the night.
Original ways to disseminate science to different target audiences, strategies to bring the gap between science and society or the entrepreneurship in the scientific communication field are just a few examples of the many topics that will be discussed during the congress. Most of the ideas will be addressed in an interdisciplinary way in order to foster mutual learning between different disciplines.
The programme is based on proposals submitted by professionals who freely demonstrate their interest in participating. The programme (in Spanish) is already available here.
Campus Gutenberg is organized by the Master Degree in Scientific, Medical and Environmental Communication at UPF Barcelona School of Management, whose directors are Gema Revuelta and Vladimir de Semir, and Obra Social “la Caixa”, in collaboration with the Studies Centre on Science, Communication and Society (SCS-UPF), the Catalan Association for Science Communication and the Department of Experimental and Health Sciences from UPF.
This event is open to anyone interested in scientific communication, so the registration is free.
Campus Gutenberg is usually in Spanish or Catalan but depending on the international attendance specific sessions can be hold in English. Some debates will be available in streaming.
