Workshop description

From Science to Society (FS2S) is a scientific seminar co-organised by the Club de Científicos (Becarios de Excelencia Rafael del Pino) and the Rafael del Pino Foundation. This seminar is organised jointly within the mission of both institutions to develop the values of leadership and entrepreneurship in Spanish society. In the same vein, the FS2S shares the same objectives as the Club de Científicos (Becarios de Excelencia Rafael del Pino):

  • To promote and consolidate a global community of young Spanish scientists with interests in interdisciplinary areas such as technological innovation and the academy-business connection.
  • To offer a platform for meeting, discussion and dissemination of current, relevant, global and transcendental topics for the entire scientific community.
  • Promoting innovative technological initiative as a fundamental pillar of the Spanish economy

This seminar is a unique opportunity to debate and experience first-hand in a reference research context such as the University of Cambridge. During four days, the different ways of transferring scientific knowledge to society will be debated.

Throughout the workshop, we will be joined by researchers from the University of Cambridge who are also scientific entrepreneurs, working on projects alongside industrial/pharmaceutical companies or helping to transform policy using science, sharing their experiences.
