BYAXON IN THE PUBS - PINT OF SCIENCE 2019

22nd May 2019

  

The project ByAxon has been the star at the "Tech me out" sessions of Pint of Science in Spain. Mª Concepción Serrano (ICMM-CSIC) and Lucas Pérez (IMDEA Nanociencia) have participated this Wednesday 22nd of May on two different meetings in the cities of Madrid and Toledo, respectively. In both cases, the pubs helding the event had a full house, about 150 attendees in total. Our researchers Serrano and Pérez demonstrated their excellent skills in science communication and in turn, the public responded with a prolific questions session. 

Pint of Science was an initiative of two researchers at Imperial College (London) that quickly reached the category of Festival in UK in 2013. From that year on, the Festival has been held in an increasing number of cities around the globe. This year 2019, over 300 cities from 24 countries have participated in Pint of Science.

THE FEMALE BYAXON RESEARCHERS THINK OVER GENDER BALANCE ON THE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY

8th March 2019


The scientists from the ByAxon project have been interviewed by the FETFX team as part of International Women’s Day and give their views about gender balance in FET* projects. The scientists have mused about the theme #BalanceforBetter and how gender diversity have help them in their academic projects.

One thing that stands out about the ByAxon project is that five out of six principal investigators, i.e. leaders of this STEM project in their institution, are women. Even though the overall gender balance is similar to other EU projects, the number of women leaders is above the average. The full interview can be read in the website of FETFX.

FETFX, or EFFECT, is a project funded by the HORIZON 2020 FET-Open Programme with the aim of enhancing the visibility and impact of FET research. EFFECT will accomplish this by strengthening the involvement in the FET world of researchers, policy makers, industrial players, the media and the public, via fresh, impact-driven communication materials and engaging community-building actions. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 FET Programme under grant agreement No. 824753.
