Marketing and Communication

The ICN2 Marketing and Communication Department offers a range of services to enable and optimise dissemination of the knowledge generated at the ICN2. Its goal is to maximise impact across all key stakeholder groups, while respecting the principles of responsible research and innovation (RRI).

Among its responsibilities is the management of the ICN2 website, social networks and institutional image. It coordinates graphic design tasks to ensure that the quality of visual support material is on a par with the science being developed, as well as writing support for public-facing and internal texts. Its actions are aimed at finding the most effective way to engage a range of audiences, from the internal community to industry to the interested layman.

The department also supports and leads the organisation of high-impact events that raise the profile of the ICN2 in different contexts and delivers a strong line in education outreach. NanoEduca, one of the flagship projects promoted by this department with Severo Ochoa funds and together with partnering institutions, was recognised with the 2018 National Scientific Communication Prize awarded by the FCRi and the Catalan Government.

Regarding transparency and accountability, it has an active role in institutional reporting as well as in the implementation of the Open Science requirements regarding data and publications.
