Meet the groups that will be taking part in the Live Research Fair 2023!
The project “Do you want to know how we investigate the brain in a laboratory to find out how neurodegenerative diseases develop?” by the Biomedical research in Alzheimer’s disease group at the Institute of Neuroscience (INc) of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, was the most voted proposal (56.2%) in the public survey, in which more than 886 people participated, to choose the 11 projects that will be presented this year in the Live Research Fair.
The evaluation committee met on Friday 27 January to select the other 10 research groups and organisations which, between 18 and 22 April, will be relocating part of their laboratories to the CosmoCaixa science museum in Barcelona in this edition of the fair to interact with the attendees and offer them the opportunity to conduct experiments and solve enigmas using scientific methodology.

The objective of the Live Researcher Fair –organised by the Scientific Culture Department of the Barcelona Science Park, in collaboration with “la Caixa” Foundation, is to showcase ongoing projects in Catalonia in different fields of research in order to bring science closer to the citizens and to promote scientific vocations among young people.
The event is part of the PCB’s Research in Society science dissemination programme that stages more than 100 activities involving almost 5,000 people every year. In the most recent fair, more than 1,600 visitors were given the opportunity to conduct scientific experiments with the help of 80 researchers.
The programme has received the Educational Quality Seal of the Pedagogical Council of Barcelona, promoted by the Barcelona Municipal Education Institute (IMEB), and enjoys the support of the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT), of the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness, as well as the Culture Institute of Barcelona (ICUB), created by Barcelona City Council.
