The Centre de Recerca en Sanitat Animal (CReSA), UAB-IRTA is a public foundation located in Barcelona (Spain) for the research and technological development, studies and education in the sphere of animal health. Beyond these purposes, another mission of the CReSA is the promotion of the social spreading of the scientific and technological culture, as a tool of competitiveness and improvement of the life quality of citizens. Therefore, activities designed in a form accessible to non-specialized persons are planned for making science available to society.
Upper Secondary Education is the last phase of Secondary Education which is voluntary (16-18-years-old). The last PISA reports point out a recession in sciences level of the Secondary Education students in Spain. Therefore, this segment is one of the targets for the Communication Unit of the CReSA. The basic objectives of our communication activities are: motivating their interests towards the research, consolidating the public image of the research as an activity that generates development and life quality, orientating the students interested in scientific careers, increasing their scientific vocations and guaranteeing the future competitiveness.
More than 1,500 young students visited our research facilities from 2007 to 2010; around 2,000 reproductions of our science clips were watched during a 5-months period; more than 500 people got subscribed to our journal of science divulgation in one month; an educative website was addressed to the non-specialized public. These data are some of the results achieved by the communication actions of the CReSA during the last 5 years.
