On July 2, the XVIII Ikerbasque Workshop was held, an annual meeting attended by more than 100 researchers in which they could share their work and exchange experiences. During the event, the Scientific Director of Ikerbasque Fernando Cossío announced the milestones reached by Ikerbasque, as well as the latest news and challenges for the coming years.
In addition, on this occasion 3 working groups were created in order to enhance the synergies and collaborations between researchers:
- Experimental Sciences, moderated by Juan José Gómez-Cadenas, ERC researcher at the DIPC.
- Biosciences, moderated by Iban Ubarretxena, Scientific Director of Biofisika.
- Social Sciences, moderated by Mª José Sanz, Scientific Director at BC3.
The event concluded with a cultural visit to Chillida-Leku, where the researchers could have a more informal atmosphere.
