The Instituto de Nanociencia y Materiales de Aragón (INMA), CSIC-UNIZAR, is a research institute aware of and committed to the current demand of society, which increasingly demands to know the work of researchers and the benefits that this research brings to them as citizens.
To promote this line of action, the INMA has, since 2017, a Scientific Culture and Innovation Unit (UCC+i) accredited by the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology – Ministry of Science and Innovation, which is responsible for coordinating the work of dissemination and outreach whose work has received recognition and awards at international, national and regional level.
The UCC+i offers its researchers the necessary support to:
– The dissemination of research work / awards / congresses / conferences / lectures / thesis readings, etc., in both internal (web, social networks, iCEQMA, iCIENCIAS, IUNIZAR etc.) and external, regional and national media (press/radio/television).
– Training in science outreach and dissemination, through specific courses for all those who wish to get started in science outreach and dissemination activities in society.
– Participation in the different initiatives to disseminate science developed by the INMA: talks in educational centres (from children’s to university) and leisure centres such as bars or fairs, workshops, guided tours, documentaries, video games, competitions, etc.
– The development of dissemination and diffusion activities that need to be included in certain research projects.
