Our activities

We organize seminars, conferences and open events montly. Our misision is to popularize and promote science in Spain, as well as to offer educational content of interest to our scientific community.

Our events are interdisciplinary and heterogenous: we organize activities and talks on technical and specific topics (e.g. on cancer, artificial intelligence, physics...), on innovation and technology transfer, as well as others focused on cross-cutting areas (e.g. reflection about possible scientific careers, debates about the role of scientists in the political debate, promoting leadership and diversity in the scientific-technological environment, etc.).

However, establishing a writing routine can be difficult, especially when training in this discipline is rare within the [...]

Artificial Intelligence: Present, Past, and Future (II)

Register Artificial Intelligence techniques are increasingly present in all scientific fields and have driven great advances in recent years, becoming indispensable tools. Consequently, the Rafael del Pino Scientists Club, with the aim of promoting innovation, leadership, and social commitment among Spanish researchers, wants to bring together the community doing research in topics related to Artificial Intelligence.  With that goal in mind, before the summer holidays, we hosted the first in a series of meetings on Artificial Intelligence and were fortunate to have Antonio Torralba (MIT) as speaker.  This time, we will host two talks that we hope will be of interest [...]

Managing emotions: the catalyst for productivity (II)

Register Have you ever refused a fascinating project because its results could not be so promising? Do you feel comfortable discussing your results with your labmates and collaborators? How would you describe your department’s culture? After our last event in June with Psychology and Neuroscience experts, we are more aware of the emotional dynamics and how they affect our motivation, health, communication, and decision taking in our job. Now, we would like to start the new academic course discussing how [...]
