Public Engagement

The UAB carry out some action to ensure that their Researchers made known their research activities to society at large in such a way that they can be understood by non-specialists, thereby improving the public's understanding of science. Direct engagement with the public will help researchers to better understand public interest in priorities for science and technology and also the public's concerns.

Observatory for the difussion of science

The ODC is an structure of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) which promotes the spread of science and promotes an inclusive vision of science as a part of our society.

Institute for Education Science (ICE)


The ICE is a structure of the UAB which is conceived as a meeting point between the university and the other levels of the educational system. The ICE develops its work in the areas of teacher training, educational research and innovation, and technical support in programs and projects related to teaching and learning.

Among other actions, the ICE promotes the ARGÓ Program. The program provides training activities to baccalaureate and professional training teachers in order to update their knowledge. Teachers also have the opportunity to visit research centers and know research projects developed at UAB.

The project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.

ORION

ORION aims to explore ways in which research and funding organizations in life sciences and biomedicine can open up the way they fund, organize and do research. ORION is a 4-year project that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. CRECIM is one of the nine partners in the project.

DESIRE

The European project DESIRE (Disseminating Educational Science, Innovation and Research in Europe) develops models of diffusion and exploitation to ease the spreading of science education projects results to teachers. The DESIRE Project has been funded with the support of the Lifelong Learning Program of the European Union. CRECIM was one of the partners in the project.
