We are happy to announce that FECYT has selected the "Matheroes: Supermaterials, the heroes of the future" project to be part of the eighth edition of the catalog of "Innovative practices in scientific culture".
The "Innovative practices in scientific culture"catalog includes a selection of activities that FECYT (Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología) has considered as unique in science outreach and science communicatin. It includes innovative and high quality actions that highlight for some of their aspects: their new formats, the strategic objectives they pursue, the specific public they are aimed at, their high impact on the participants, the invomvement of scientific and non-scientific agents, to name a few.
