Science occupies an increasingly prominent place in the media and among the interests of citizens. Our School has an enormous potential to generate scientific knowledge and, therefore, one of our objectives is promote the dissemination and scientific and research culture developed by all the people and entities that make up this centre.
We want to bring the benefits of science closer to society and make scientific advances more accessible to the general public, especially to young people, in order to awaken in them an interest and vocation for science, both for the basic sciences and for more applied aspects.
