Researchers' Night in Catalonia
Scientific Corner: science microtalks at imaginCafé
Scientific Corner is a series of informational microtalks lasting between 8 and 10 minutes to bring cutting-edge research closer to the general public. Researchers will talk about language, artificial intelligence, mathematics, pollution caused by plastic, epigenetics, the prevention of infectious diseases and supercomputing, among other things.
Come and discover the top research conducted in Catalonia alongside the people involved in it! The talks will be in Catalan, Spanish and English, and when they finish there will be 10 minutes to ask questions to each speaker.
