Science education

IDIBELL works with educational institutions to stimulate scientific vocations among high school and bachelor’s degree students, and to promote an interdisciplinary and participatory approach to science learning.

Through its educational projects, IDIBELL strengthens the skills of students in the field of biomedicine, and promotes healthy habits and health awareness. Finally, it also supports teachers to update science education in the classroom. In order to carry out this task, IDIBELL opens the doors of its facilities to the youngest and also carries out activities in classrooms or in cultural and social facilities.

Featured activities


Collaborative project with the Bellvitge Institute and the city of L'Hospitalet to strengthen students' skills in the field of biomedicine. Art and science projects, visits and conferences such as the Unistar Day, the Life & Science magazine and innovative projects are carried out.


IDIBELL NEXT is a project that offers bachelor’s degree students at the year before University the opportunity to carry out their research project at our laboratories and other facilities. IDBELL researchers supervise students throughout this process.


In this project, conceptualized and created by EscoLab and IDIBELL, secondary students are accompanied by researchers of the Infections and Cancer group in an educative project on vaccines and fake news. At the end, students produce an awareness campaign on vaccination.


ERASMUS+ project with the participation of IDIBELL and three other European institutions. Through game-based learning methods and with a digital escape room as a central element, science communicators and researchers bring research closer to high school students and their teachers.

Science workshops

Workshops allow an interactive approachment to biomedicine. We have created workshops for high school students who visit the real laboratories and meet the researchers, and also for science fairs attended by the general public, children and families.

Inspira STEAM

Several IDIBELL researchers and support personnel participate in this program, which aims to attract more young people to STEAM careers, with special emphasis on girls. Our researchers visit schools and institutes to convey their passion for research.
