Every year the Marine Research Center of the University of Vigo opens its doors during the “Divulgando Ciencia Singular” days, in order to disseminate the avant-garde marine research that we develop and the importance it has for society. During those days, we show our facilities at the Marine Science Station of Toralla (ECIMAT) –main research infrastructure of the CIM– and our research laboratories, located in the Olimpia Valencia and Experimental Sciences buildings on the Vigo campus, and in the Campus da Auga building located in the Ourense campus.
The open days of this year 2022 took place on Friday 21 October and 5 November and consisted of two different activities:
Meet the CIM in the street – Friday 21 October 2022: the research staff of the different areas of the CIM approached the A Laxe shopping center in Vigo with a series of workshops, games and informative activities to publicize their marine research work. It was between 17:00 and 20:00 h on the second floor of the shopping center. No prior registration was required and admission was free.
Come on board with the CIM – Saturday, November 5, 2022: 3-hour activity (each shift) that included a boat trip from a Laxe to the ECIMAT, visit to the marine station, guided activities and return to a Laxe. Register at this link
