The three Basque capitals will host the Science, Technology and Innovation Week
Between the 8th and the 21st of November the means of "introducing innovation into day-to-day business management" will be disseminated
The Science Areas set up in the three Basque capitals will house scientific and technological stands offering experiments and demonstrations with didactic and interactive sessions as part of the celebration of the 10th edition of Science Week.
The Science, Technology and Innovation Week aims to raise awareness of the methods used to "apply innovation within companies as a matter of course, on the same level as excellence and quality." These words were spoken by the Basque Government's Minister for Industry, Innovation, Trade and Tourism, Bernabé Unda, during the conference inaugurating the Science Week in the three Basque capitals. Introducing innovation in companies produces "results that make us more competitive," the minister affirmed.
The Science Week is the largest social communication event focusing on science, technology and innovation that is celebrated in the Basque Country, an annual initiative that contributes to the promotion of a scientific culture amongst society as a whole whilst encouraging scientific and technological vocations amongst young people. The event provides an opportunity to discover research beyond the confines of the laboratory, making innovation a day-to-day affair.
The 2010 Science Week will officially run between the 8th and the 21st of November; however, this edition will be extended for over a month with 150 activities programmed by the various agents of the business, institutional, social and communication spheres and, above all, via the THEWEEK10 events.
Over the course of a two-week period, workshops, conferences, discussions, exhibitions, scientific cafeterias and open days will be organised.
