Discover research! and Do research! are part of Research in Society, a programme launched by the Barcelona Science Park in 2003 to bring science closer to the public at large and encourage vocations among young people. It currently includes over 100 activities in which around 5,000 people participate every year.
The programme t is backed by the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) under the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, and by the Barcelona City Council.
