Communicating to the society the importance of the problematic we are trying to solve in AMPHIBIAN, as well as our progress, is of extreme importance to us. Not only we believe that social awareness is crucial, but we also feel indebted towards those who fund our research through their taxes. Our members have participated in various science festivals and other science events addressed to society at large held all around Europe.
Among others, Dr. César de Julián Fernández, Dr. Franca Albertini, Dr. Riccardo Cabassi and Dr. Blaž Belec (IMEM-CNR) have participated in various editions of the European Night of the Researchers (Notte dei Ricercatori) in Parma (Italy).
Dr. Petra Jenuš organized the workshop “The attractive world of magnets” in Ljubljana (Slovenia) especially addressed for the youngest audience.
Assoc. Prof. Mogens Christensen (AU) talked about “Sophisticated Magnets” during Research Day (Forskningens Døgn) at Aarhus University (Denmark).
Additionally, Dr. Claudio Sangregorio (ICCOM-CNR) has held several seminars for high school students in the Sesto Fiorentino (Italy). Prof. Pilar Marín and Dr. Jesús López organized an open doors event at their research institute, in the occasion of Science Week (La Semana de la Ciencia) in Madrid (Spain).
