THE UNEXPECTED SCIENCE

In order to communicate with the general public, IBSA Foundation involves exceptional people and selects approaches that are not normally used in disseminating science. To reach this objective it also uses the expressive force of art and the effectiveness of creative languages, such as music and comic books.

The goal is to make science accessible and fun to ensure the dissemination of correct information and to get the message across that research is not a system of absolute truths, but a passionate work of investigation and discovery that is constantly evolving.
