About the contest:

The Department of Postgraduate and Specialization (DPE) of the CSIC has organized the science outreach contest “Yo Investigo. Yo soy CSIC” with the aim that predoctoral researchers from the CSIC present their doctoral thesis to a non-specialist audience through a video of maximum 3 minutes in duration.

The aim of the "Yo Investigo. Yo soy CSIC" competition is to give visibility to the research carried out in our research groups and to encourage doctoral students to develop their communication skills and improve their CV if they win any of the prizes.
