Great reception in Argentina for the postgraduate programme in Scientific, Medical and Environmental Communication
On 19th June the main auditorium of the Fundación Instituto Leloir saw the opening ceremony of the Postgraduate Programme in Scientific, Medical and Environmental Communication which is being held in Buenos Aires until the end of November of this year.
The postgraduate programme was officially opened with a master class by Vladimir de Semir, the programme director as well as director of the UPF Scientific Communication Observatory, who placed special emphasis on strategic communication in scientific communication.
The Postgraduate Programme in Scientific, Medical and Environmental Communication is organised jointly by the UPF, la Fundación Instituto Leloir and the Todo Noticias channel and is sponsored by Novartis Argentina, Fundación Carolina Argentina and Fundación Noble, as well as counting on the support of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Productive Innovation of the Argentine Republic.
The promotional aspect of the programme has been supported greatly by the co-organising and sponsoring institutions, and has attracted 35 participants in its first edition.
The success of this first year has encouraged us to organise another edition of the programme, this time in a semi-onsite format, from 26th March to 18th July, 2009.
