100xCiencia.3 - Bridging Science and Society

100xCiencia.3, the successor to last year's 100xCiencia.2, is almost here (Thursday, November 15, 2018 - 09:30 - Thursday, November 15, 2018 - 19:00). The subject of this year’s event will underscore the importance of scientific education, citizen science and the participation of society in the present and future of science. The 100xciencia.3, co-organized by CNIO and SOMMa, will gather together SOMMa members and other attendees to share ongoing projects on science education, citizen science and public engagement that can encourage society and us to continue working together. Different stakeholders relevant for science and society will participate in roundtables focused on timely and important topics. The 100xciencia.3 will bring together scientists, politicians, journalists and representatives of the civil society to enable an open debate about the different aspects of how and why science is important for society.

The challenges and opportunities offered by citizen science and science education will be discussed over three different round tables:

- The media as channeling agents for science

- Scientists and science policy together for society

- Scientific empowerment of society

The selected twelve 10-minute flashtalks presented by both SOMMa and external partners will display ongoing projects revolving around science education and public engagement.

100xciencia.3 will have Dr. Robert Huber, 1988 Chemistry Nobel Prize, as keynote speaker so we can begin the event on a high note with an exciting talk on "The century of vision: Protein structures for drug research". Stay tuned for upcoming news!
