To communicate the diversity and strength of its international research ICGEB uses digital learning resources. Movie collections of scientific presentations by international experts in a vast range of podcasts on topics in the Life Sciences are filmed and produced in-house. These are freely available across three platforms: YouTube, iTunes and on the ICGEB Web site.

ICGEB’s scientific collections, which include international seminars, meetings and courses, public events and university lessons, receive 11,000 downloads each month on YouTube and iTunes, and millions of hits each month on podcasts available on our Website.
