IBEC is one of the 13 research centres to be chosen to take part in Fundació Catalunya–La Pedrera’s 2014 edition of Professors i Ciència, an excellence programme for the specialized training for secondary school science teachers.
The foundation elected some of Catalonia’s “leading research centres and institutes” to take part in the programme, which will provide an opportunity for about 230 teachers to receive specific training on various subjects to take back to the classroom within the research centres. IBEC’s six-hour course, “Una finestra al desenvolupament embrionari del sistema nerviós”, will be held in May, and will be run by Vanessa Gil and Ariadna Pérez, researchers from Dr. José Antonio del Río’s Molecular and Cellular Neurobiotechnology group.
The other centres which will take part include the Institut d’Arqueologia Clàssica (ICAC), the Institut de Ciències Fotòniques (ICFO) and the Institut Químic de Sarrià (IQS).
