Events

The ICGEB is actively engaged in the dissemination of science for the public. Our scientists, staff and students participate in science fairs and events and voluntarily support local, national and international outreach activities, thereby enriching our work, deepening our contribution to the wider society, and aligning our mission to our environment. 

The ICGEB promotes public engagement to communicate science through conferences, such as “Science & the City”, and by taking an active role in joint initiatives, such as Trieste Next, the Italian science fair organised together with the other major science institutes located in Trieste, each September.

Scientists and staff at ICGEB New Delhi participate in the annual India International Science Festival IISF, World Biofuel Day, and other events organised by the Indian Government.

ICGEB Cape Town champions the SA Government’s Outreach and Communication programmes and is present at the Science Forum SFSA each year, as well as National Science Week South Africa.
