Communications & Scientific culture
IDIBELL's Communication and Fundraising Unit aims to improve public understanding of science focusing on the institute, its researchers and its value to society.
The unit carries out its mission through a wide range of initiatives and activities aimed at different audiences, including researchers, journalists and the media, politicians, students, science professors, the general public and, of course, members of IDIBELL.

Science & Society
COVID-19 has affected countries all over the world and impacted the lives and well-being. Many insitutional activities, such as fundraising ones, had to be cancelled as well. This was the case for our annual fundraising campaign, which in 2019 was dedicated to cancer research and in 2020 was meant to be focused on neuropsychiatric illnesses. Instead, we launched several campaigns to raise funds for the reasearch against the new coronavirus which gathered more than 100.000 euros.

Chef Nandu Jubany and the company specialized in high-quality kitchen clothing CSTY designed solidarity masks to raise funds for research against the new coronavirus. More than 15.000 thousand units were sold with the intention of raising funds, protect individuals and spread smiles.
To help stop the virus, #BellvitgeInvestiga was born, a crowdfunding initiative that receives financial aid through the online platform: coronavirus.idibell.cat. Funds were used to identify new therapeutic targets, prevent infection, and develop faster methods of diagnosis.
