Famous for five minutes: TV3

Along with other IBEC colleagues, Juan Fran was attending Jornada Connect-EU, a two-day forum for industry and researchers on EU financing, at the World Trade Center in Barcelona. He was filmed as he gave a presentation about the BOND project,  a research collaboration coordinated by Josep Samitier’s Laboratory of Nanobioengineering Research and involving other IBEC scientists, which the news report held up as an example of a major project that has merited investment by the EU.

Juan Fran was then interviewed by the broadcasters – sharing airtime with none other than the Catalan Minister for Innovation, Universities and Enterprises – and was asked to comment on his concerns about the current financial climate and projected budget cuts.
