- Webinar 2: "Scientific illustration: the artistic side of science"
Past 30th of June, the second webinar from the series “Translating knowledge: the world of scientific communication and illustration” took place online. In “Scientific illustration: the artistic side of science”, three superb professionals who explained to us (and showed) how they ended up doing what they loved the most, despite their different career trajectories.
- Cirenia Arias (@cireniasketches, freelance scientific illustrator and postdoc research assistant)
"For me, scientific illustration is about solving communication problems, finding bridges for communication."
- Gil Costa (@GilCostaDesign, freelance Scientific Designer and Illustrator)
"For me, visual science communication (especially for scientists) has to do with clarity, salience, flow and visual impact."
- Miriam Rivera (@miriamriig, scientific illustrator at Biomiics)
"For me, illustration is a powerful tool to communicate things that you cannot sometimes communicate with words: our minds work with images and imagination, and words are not enough to explain complex concepts. This is the magic of illustration."

- Webinar 1: “What does being a science communicator mean?”
Past 3rd of June, CEBE started a series of webinars called “Translating knowledge: the world of scientific communication and illustration” with the webinar “What does being a science communicator mean?”. Three outstanding professionals who displayed a different background but shared a common passion for science communication answered this question.
- Pablo Barrecheguren (freelance science communicator):
“For me being a science communicator is something very joyful and, sometimes, very hard. So, if at a certain point you find yourself somewhere you do not want to be in, it is OK to go back”
- Esther Sánchez García (scientific editor of Carne Cruda radio program, podcast director and editor)
“For me, a science communicator is a tool to spread the importance of science to the public (remember, you are not the news but the intermediary between science and people)
- Juan Manuel Sarasua (freelance science journalist and science communication consultant)
“For me, being a science communicator means connecting dots, or connecting scientific research with general audience interest”
