ICRA once again sponsors the Pint of Science Festival in Girona

Tuesday, 16 May 2023

  • A total of 20 researchers are participating in the Pint of Science Festival in Girona, of which 6 are from ICRA.

For the second consecutive year, the Catalan Water Research Institute (ICRA) sponsors and acts as promoter of the Print of Science Festival, which will take place in Girona from 22 to 24 May.

It is an international scientific dissemination event that is organized simultaneously in several countries around the world and in several cities in Spain. The festival invites scientists to share their knowledge and research in bars and thus make science accessible to everyone. In this sense, for three days there will be several talks in the bars attached to the festival. In addition to complementary activities such as contests, live music or games.

At the Girona edition, a total of 20 researchers will collaborate, 6 of whom belong to ICRA. Thus, Javier Ortiz Rivero, Lluc Leonela, Gabriela Cordoba, Rafael Marcé, Daniela Henry, Josep Mas-Pla will discuss topics such as the presence of Biofilm in rivers; the route of antibiotics; or the importance of water and the sea in climate change, among others.
