Outreach activities and Press Releases

El desgel als mars antàrtics afavoreix la formació de núvols


Webinars: "Café con Hielo"

"Café con hielo" is a series of dissemination talks that will cover current issues on polar science. The activity comes from the collaboration between the platform POLARCSIC (from the Spanish National Research Council) and APECS-Spain, with the aim of approaching polar science to the general public.

The series will include 6 sessions, all of them during Spring 2021. In each session, two scientists will give a flash talk about different perspectives of the session topic and afterwards, there will be an open round table, conducted by a chair related to the topic. The idea is to promote the participation of the audience with questions and comments to create a conversation among all the participants.

The activities will be broadcasted live on POLARCSIC Youtube Channel and will be in Spanish, so we encourage all our Spanish speaker colleagues from all over the world to join us!
