Popularization of Science

For years, the Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences has been involved in activities related to disseminating knowledge about the surrounding world, acquainting the general public with modern scientific achievements, indicating the importance of scientific developments in the progress of civilization, enhancing the interest in research among young people.

IBB PAS implements these goals by supporting the activities of the BioCentre of Scientific Education, and organization of workshops and courses for a wide audience. Every year, IBB PAS employees and PhD students actively participate in the Science Festival, offering practical classes and lectures. Through the Internet, we present facts and debunk the “myths” that mislead the public opinion, including information about vaccines. IBB PAS hosts talented young people by offering them short-term internships under the supervision of experienced researchers with a passion for transferring knowledge.
