ISGlobal's Scientific Culture Unit (UCC+i) promotes access to scientific knowledge and social interest in science through science outreach and education, participation and citizen science around our institution's scientific research.

This unit has been established and consolidated in parallel with the commitment to excellence in global health research. Using formal and non-formal methods, it works to ensure a bridge between research and society and to promote an active role for citizens in the generation of knowledge. 

Thanks to the work carried out, the Unit has been officially recognized as a Unit for Scientific Culture and Innovation (UCC+i, abbreviated in Spanish) by the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) since 2016.
