The energy of young people at the ‘Passion for Knowledge’ festival


Education and Research


What better way of stirring scientific aspirations and encouraging research than by listening to a Nobel Prize winner. The ‘Passion for Knowledge’ festival, which is being held right now in San Sebastian, allows secondary and baccalaureate students to learn about the work of the great scientific figures. The event is sponsored by the EDP Foundation.

Izaskun Simón, head of the EDP Foundation in the Basque Country and growth areas, was tasked with welcoming the young people who took part last Wednesday in a meeting with three leading international researchers. The astrophysicist Jocelyn Bell from Oxford University, Jean Pierre Sauvage, an expert in nanotechnology from the University of Strasbourg, and the Spanish physicist Juan Ignacio Cirac, director of the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Germany, told the audience in a fun way why their work is so relevant to society as a whole.

The 'Passion for knowledge' programme is available on the event’s website.
