Network Activities

Our network teams and partners have a rich and continuous presence on national and international outreach scenes through seminars to a broad audience, including school children, public understanding of science articles and videos.

We take the opportunity in this page to provide a representative collection of the highly interesting recent outreach activities of the EuroPLEx teams and partners.

The information presented here is regularly updated.

  • The IFT periodically organizes courses on current research on fundamental physics as part of the regular training programme for secondary education teachers. The latest event took place in February-March 2019, as a  reparation for teachers that had enrolled in CERN’s Summer Visit Programme, and featured lectures, among others, by EuroPLEx’s researcher Carlos Pena.

 

  • Several IFT researchers contribute with regular articles on science outreach in mainstream newspapers, feature in science broadcasts, etc.A recent example on epidemics modelling was a series of articles by the EuroPLEx’s researcher Carlos Pena in collaboration with IkerBasque and DIPC experimental physicist Juan José Gómez-Cadenasthe published in the online cultural magazine JotDown. A collection  of articles of C. Pena in the magazine can be found here
