Advanced Courses in Life Sciences

Our Mission, Vision, and Values

  • Slider About us - Our Mission


We organise courses and peer-to-peer events that support the exchange of scientific skills, methods, and advances in the fields of life and earth sciences.

We partner with organisations and researchers to establish networks that promote life-long scientific learning in a cooperative environment.

  • Slider About us - Our vision


We strive to create networks that increase the transfer of scientific knowledge among peers and foster a fairer and healthier scientific ecosystem.

  • Slider About us - Our Values


PASSION – Inspired by science. Wish to inspire others.

COLLABORATION – Together we can do more. Science is a team sport.

EQUITY – Promote and support diversity. Nurture a fairer science.

INNOVATION – Envision new ways of learning.

SUSTAINABILITY – We care about our environmental footprint.

Innovative Training Network Plant.ID

Transmitting Science is one of the partners of the  ITN Plant.ID.

Plants are essential for many aspects of our daily lives as they provide food, medicines, and construction materials. However, plants can also cause harm, think of poisonous plants, pollen allergies, adulterants in herbal medicines, or invasive species.

Correct identification of plants is therefore crucial but unfortunately, this is often problematic. Plant.ID wants to address this issue by developing state-of-the-art molecular solutions for a simplified way of identifying plants.

Plant.ID has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 765000.

Research School in Biosystematics (ForBio)

Transmitting Science and ForBio have common goals: to teach new methodologies and to share ideas and debate in order to advance in science, and to train the next generation of scientists. Consequently, we have joined efforts to organize several courses in collaboration on topics that are relevant to the fields of Taxonomy and Systematics.

Collaborative courses will be either be held at Transmitting Science’s teaching venues in Sabadell or Hostalets de Pierola near Barcelona or at any of the venues that ForBio uses in Norway or other Scandinavian countries.

Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP)

We share the co-organization of our courses with the ICP in the courses that we run in Sabadell or at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. Being the research institution of our Scientific Director, Soledad De Esteban-Trivigno, the ICP is one of our most important partners, hosting many of our courses.

Where are we located?

Transmitting Science is based in Barcelona, Spain.

Many of our courses and workshops are held in Barcelona province. However, we run courses in Greece and Argentina together with our collaborators there.
