A Communication & Outreach Officer was hired in April 2017 to invigorate the communication program. Its main function is to support the dissemination of the research activity and the impact of the work developed by the ICMAB community.
The ICMAB was deeply engaged with the media in connection with the new findings published by our scientists in high-profile journals and institutional and outreach activities, which led to articles in the press and online media as well as participation by scientists in radio or TV programmes. In particular, our press releases have made it to La Vanguardia, El Periódico, Agencia SINC, Hipertextual, Madrimasd or Nanowerk, to name a few.

There is a 100 % increase in the number of users of our website, and a 30% increase in the number of sessions between 2016 and 2017. To be highlighted, on May 2017, we quadrupled the number of users. In addition, the ICMAB rose from the thirteenth to the fourth place in the “Research centres websites ranking” out of a total of 139 CSIC institutes websites. In addition, a 30% increase in followers has been observed in our main social networks, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, in the same period.
