The Aula L’H program on L’Hospitalet digital television, specialized in education, together with the Institut Bellvitge and IDIBELL, have carried out, throughout the 2021-22 academic year, a complete edition of the Women of Science section, entirely dedicated to disseminating the research work, the research career and the personality of five IDIBELL scientists.
Isabel Fabregat, Laia Alemany, Susana Jiménez, Anna Veiga and Antonella Consiglio have starred in the audiovisual capsules released this year, based on a close and personal biography of the scientist and on the filming of the making of an artistic portrait by high school students of the Institut Bellvitge, a center that carries out an Educational Tandem with IDIBELL.
The objective of the project is to bring citizens and, especially, students who must begin to consider their academic and vocational future, the personality and professional milestones of internationally renowned scientists, and to do so from an artistic perspective. The collaboration will continue: throughout the next season of the program, new capsules will be released, dedicated to new IDIBELL scientists.
