Communication and Science Outreach

Activities related to science communication and scientific dissemination are increasingly important for researchers and for society, for many reasons: they allow society to learn more about the work of researchers and the impact that science has on all fields, increase the interest and support of governments and entities that provide financial support to scientific work, and also promote scientific vocations in young people.

The CBM Communication and Science Outreach department has the following objectives and tasks:

- Promote the national and international relevance of CBM

- Make the scientific achievements of the center visible, through the dissemination of articles, grants, scholarships, conferences, seminars, theses, etc.

- Coordinate and scale the center's communication channels: social networks, website, etc.

- Promote the relationship with the press and other media, including through the CSIC and UAM communications departments

- Organize outreach and educational events and activities at the CBM and beyond, and inform the public about them and other news and initiatives of interest

- Facilitate and encourage the participation of our scientists in events and activities of scientific culture, both their own and in collaboration with the CSIC, the UAM and other national and international organizations.

- Promote the attraction of scientific and management talent by disseminating job offers

- Collaborate with other CSIC centers on the UAM campus and outside it, to develop activities and events

- Coordinate internal communications for CBM staff
