The DAM Gaia group on the fair «Live research»




The Gaia group of our Department will be on the fair «Live research». The fair is an exhibition of contemporary research organized annually by the Barcelona Science Park (Parc Científic de Barcelona) in collaboration with the University of Barcelona (UB).

The aim of the fair is to improve scientific understanding and awareness in our society by presenting research that is currently being undertaken in Barcelona to the public, and for real researchers to explain to the general public the main characteristics of the scientific method.

At the same time the Fair presents research being performed in Barcelona in a coordinated way, exhibiting projects of research groups from different R&D institutions and centres in the city. These bring part of their laboratories to the Fair so that members of the public can interact with the instruments that are central to research in Barcelona and ask whatever questions they fancy.

Dates: 8-10 April 2014
Place: Aula Capella of the UB Historic Building

Time: From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Free entrance from 4 p.m.

Free entrance
