ICMAB, as a scientific research institute, offers its own endorsement of the march and of the movement that it represents, and encourages everybody, not only the scientific community, to get involved and show solidarity.
In Barcelona, the event will take place from 12 pm to 4 pm at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB). Instead of being a simple march, the event will include a roundtable about "Politics based on scientific evidence", different shows, live music and food & drinks.
In Spain, the reivindication of the March for Science also includes the claim for a greater investment in R+D+i. The COSCE (Conferederation of Spanish Scientific Societies) has prepared the "Manifest for science", which counts now with more than 3000 signatures (individuals as well as corporations are welcome to sign), and the Scientists Dating Forum, the association that organizes the event in Barcelona, has also prepared the manifesto "Science, what is Science? Why march for Science?", which will be read on the day of the event.
