The ICMAB supports the March for Science and encourages everyone to participate

The March for Science, the largest global march to support politics based on research and evidence, will take place in more than 500 cities around the world on April 22, 2017, which coincides with the International Earth Day. In Spain, the March for Science will take place in Barcelona, Girona, Madrid, Sevilla and Granada.

ICMAB, as a scientific research institute, offers its own endorsement of the march and of the movement that it represents, and encourages everybody, not only the scientific community, to get involved and show solidarity.

In Barcelona, the event will take place from 12 pm to 4 pm at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB). Instead of being a simple march, the event will include a roundtable about "Politics based on scientific evidence", different shows, live music and food & drinks. 

In Spain, the reivindication of the March for Science also includes the claim for a greater investment in R+D+i. The COSCE (Conferederation of Spanish Scientific Societies) has prepared the "Manifest for science", which counts now with more than 3000 signatures (individuals as well as corporations are welcome to sign), and the Scientists Dating Forum, the association that organizes the event in Barcelona, has also prepared the manifesto "Science, what is Science? Why march for Science?", which will be read on the day of the event.

    THE NEW YORK TIMES | By NATALIE ANGIERFEB. 23, 2017 Dr. Dresselhaus used resonant magnetic fields and lasers to map out the electronic energy structure of carbon. She investigated the traits that emerge when carbon is interwoven with other materials: Stitch in some alkali metals, for example, and carbon can become a superconductor, in which an electric current meets virtually no resistance.
