    Education is vital to the development of societies, and for this reason, the CNIO has sought to promote its Science Outreach activities through the project CNIO & The City. Around 54 employees from the centre have become involved in the activities of this initiative with a view to showcasing the science conducted by the Centre in an approachable and understandable way, so that members of the general public get involved and learn through it. CNIO & The City is supported by the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) – Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness, “la Caixa” Foundation and collaboration with associations such as Amigos de la Ciencia “Diverciencia”.
