Advanced Courses in Life Sciences

About us

Our mission

Transmitting Science is a company that started in 2012 to manage specialized courses and workshops. Up to date, we have run more than 135 advanced courses on different topics related to Life Sciences.

Courses and workshops are highly dynamic, always including practical sessions and allowing time for questions and interaction.

Sharing scientific knowledge is our objective. New methodologies need to be learned, and new ideas must be shared and debated in order to advance science.

Since 2016 we offer a range of services for researchers including communication and outreach, event organization and Partnership in European programs.

More than 2000 participants from 63 countries

Innovative Training Network Plant.ID

Transmitting Science is one of the partners of the  ITN Plant.ID.

Plants are essential for many aspects of our daily lives as they provide food, medicines, and construction materials. However, plants can also cause harm, think of poisonous plants, pollen allergies, adulterants in herbal medicines, or invasive species.

Correct identification of plants is therefore crucial but unfortunately, this is often problematic. Plant.ID wants to address this issue by developing state-of-the-art molecular solutions for a simplified way of identifying plants.

Plant.ID has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 765000.

Transmitting Science and ForBio have common goals: to teach new methodologies and to share ideas and debate in order to advance in science, and to train the next generation of scientists. Consequently, we have joined efforts to organize several courses in collaboration on topics that are relevant to the fields of Taxonomy and Systematics.

Collaborative courses will be either be held at Transmitting Science’s teaching venues in Sabadell or Hostalets de Pierola near Barcelona or at any of the venues that ForBio uses in Norway or other Scandinavian countries.

We share the co-organization of our courses with the ICP in the courses that we run in Sabadell or at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. Being the research institution of our Scientific Director, Soledad De Esteban-Trivigno, the ICP is one of our most important partners, hosting many of our courses.

Where are we located?

Transmitting Science is based in Barcelona, Spain.

Many of our courses and workshops are held in Barcelona province. However, we run courses in Greece and Argentina together with our collaborators there.
