IBEC and the municipality of Sant Feliu de Guíxols join forces to create health exhibition

The exhibition will have six major thematic areas starting with the birth of a person and tracking them throughout their life as their health gradually starts to fail. The exhibition’s entertaining and educational format will include audiovisual displays, visual metaphors, historical material and other artefacts to show the long fight that medicine has taken to reach present-day standards.

IBEC’s part of the exhibition will focus on the present day situation of medicine as well as reflecting on the future. The institute will develop the exhibition’s content with its scientific expertise, and both sides will work together to conduct educational workshops related to research in bioengineering and nanomedicine.

Monday saw the official signing of the agreement, when the Councillor for History, Knowledge and Dissemination, Pau Casals, and the mayor of Sant Feliu, Joan Alfons Albó, met with IBEC’s managing director David Badia and Events and Outreach Coordinator Pilar Jiménez (l-r).

“IBEC is very flattered to be invited by Sant Feliu to participate in the exhibition, as it is a confirmation of our significant contribution to bioengineering in the health sector, and of our position as front runners in future medicine,” says David. “Such initiatives are central to the missions of centres such as IBEC, as they help bring science closer to society.”
