In this short video we discuss some of the internal and external communication experimentation we have tried over the four years of the project, which ideas worked best and why, and present a range of communication and dissemination activities the project has engaged in. Advertisements
Last July, two EnEx students attended the EuroScience Open Forum 2018 in Toulouse and presented their Grand Challenges: ESR7 Ruben with his card game ChemiProject and ESR11 Mario with his YouTube channel SassyScience.

Dissemination of science to the general public and presentation of ESR Ruben Canton-Vitoria’s board game ChemiProject!
Ruben is the Marie Curie ITN Fellow of the Week, March 2018. More information on the #MSCA website!
“Enabling Excellence” ITN has organised a two day workshop for users of the AIMPRO code in Exeter, UK, from 26th to 27th March 2018, in conjunction with Strathclyde University. The AIMPRO code uses density functional theory methods to solve the quantum mechanics that controls the distribution of nuclei and electrons in materials.
Manuela Meloni, PhD student at the University of Sussex, participated in the Materials Research Exchange & Investor Showcase (MRE2018) in London. She showed her recent scientific results along with her colleagues in the Materials Physics group.
In celebration of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, Ana Santidrián García, PhD student at Instituto de Carboquímica ICB-CSIC in Zaragoza, has collaborated in the exhibition “Women in Science” which is locating in the library La Pantera Rossa (San Vicente de Paúl, 28, 50001 Zaragoza).
As part of the Enabling Excellence project the students have an exercise in communication about nanoscience. It is called the Grand Challenge. Three PhD students: Ana Santidrian Garcia, Lorenzo Vallan and Emin Istif chose to communicate nanotechnology and nanoscience to children and high school students.
An interview between Alain Chaillot and Chris Ewels on France Bleu (in French) about nanotechnology, where they discuss a bit of “Enabling Excellence” science. (14/12/2017)
In Spain or in France, same dedication to science communication! Our students participated in outreach activities while high schoolers visited the labs of ICB-CSIC (Spain) and IMN-CNRS (France).
Yumán-Agustín has created a tool to solve all the problems related to nanotechnology. He is going to show it to his partner Daniel but he doesn’t know that sometimes your creations turn against you!
How to explain the rules of the game “Jenga”? How would you explain nanoscience to teenagers? These are two questions trainees had to answer and “film” during the video training held at the IMN in Nantes, January, 24th and 25th.
