Stimulating scientific vocations

The action Stimulating scientific vocations offers a catalogue of lectures on the most current research carried out at the University of Valencia, with the aim of increasing the scientific culture of the public and promoting scientific vocations. The lectures in the catalogue are available to secondary education centres and also to primary education centres, cultural centres, associations, foundations and interested local entities.

Each centre or organisation will be able to choose one lecture per quarter and, to request them, you must fill in the form on the page of each conference.

For organisational reasons we can only attend to requests that are within the Valencian territory.

This activity is subject to the availability of researchers and technical staff and, for organisational reasons, to the budget of this unit.

If you want to propose new topics for the lecture catalogue, send an email to indicating in the subject line: "new EVC topics"
