Imaxe do programa ConCiencia 2014

 

Once again this year Santiago welcomes famous personalities with great scientific significance from around the world.

First-class scientists from all around the world, all recipients of the Nobel Prize, will be in the city throughout this year in the ninth edition of the Program ConCiencia, of the University and the Consortium of Santiago.

 

Harald zur Hausen

 

Among the objectives of this initiative, three key points are:

  1. Popularization of science by Nobel Laureates.
  2. Projecting the image of Santiago de Compostela as a focal point of intellectual activity.
  3. Promoting contacts between these top scientists and researchers of the USC.

These objectives make the ConCiencia programme different from any other initiative of scientific popularization: apart from a public lecture or specific event, it aims at taking advantage of the visit of the invited scientist, favoring his/her contact with local specialists.
