‘Out of the Box’, series of conferences on scientific investigation and art

This Friday, 6th May, the ‘Man: Nature and Future’ conference will be held by Andrés Moya, from University of Valencia, who is also a member of Sociedad Española de Biología Evolutiva (SESBE) [Spanish Society for Evolutionary Biology].

During 2016, and for the third consecutive year, Banco Sabadell Foundation is collaborating with Centro Nacional de Investigación Oncológica (CNIO) [Spanish National Cancer Research Centre] in ‘Out of the Box’, a series of seminars included in the ‘Distinguished Seminars’ program with the objective of linking scientific investigation with the world of art and literature. In order to achieve this, the most influential intellectuals in the field of international scientific excellence will participate.

The objective of this cycle is to bring to the CNIO the most important researchers, get to know the results of the most recent investigation and exchange new ideas with the center’s scientists. The conferences will be held at CNIO headquarters, but they are generally open to the public and will be included in different media formats.
