Outreach activities


One of the main pillars of the CVC’s mission is outreach. The CVC is committed to making its research accessible to all kinds of audiences, working to offer interesting content, scientific dissemination activities and citizen science programmes to bring Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence closer to citizens.

The CVC’s outreach actions aim to increase the general knowledge of science and innovation within the society, promote research results at local, national and international levels and encourage scientific vocations among young people.

Since 2021, the CVC is recognized as a Unit of Scientific Culture and Innovation (UCC+i) by the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) and is part of the Spanish UCC+i Network. UCC+i acts as an intermediary between research centers and citizens, with the main aim of promoting scientific, technological and innovation culture and knowledge through a range of activities.

Stay tuned!
