Barcelona, 21 NOV: Nanoscience, Nanotechnology, Society and Graphic Design

The dynamic workshop on "Nanoscience, Nanotechnology, Society and Graphic Design" will explore the use of methodologies of graphic design, such as design thinking, to open up new ways to bring nanoscience and nanotechnology closer to society in an efficient way.

14 November 2018

With this objective, three groups of people will participate in the event: citizens, experts in graphic design, and researchers and science communicators working in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Anna May Masnou, from ICMAB, will give an introductory talk on nanoscience (Nano-què?) to open the event.

After the three introductory talks about graphic design, design thinking and nanoscience, the attendees will participate in a guided dynamic on design thinking around nanoscience to explore, in small interdisciplinary working groups, new communicative methodologies and synergies between the three sectors.
