Outreach activities

The IQCC is an active source of dissemination and communication activities and has a proven track record in this area. Two different strategies are followed. The first one is direct communication activities of IQCC, by means of corporate platforms (website, social media) and individual promotion by the researchers or research teams. In second place, IQCC collaborates with the Chair for Science, Culture, and Digital Communication (C4D), an offspring of the Institute that fosters innovation in digital science communication and public awareness of science. Prof. Miquel Duran and Dr. Silvia Simon (permanent staff of the University and IQCC members) are very experienced researchers in science outreach and communication. Dr. Simon is the director of the C4D and the PI of the Researchers’ Nights (FP7-PEOPLE-NIGHT), an outreach event for the general public organized by the IQCC since 2008. IQCC has also participated in Science Communication innovation projects.
