October 28th 2011

REMEDI and CIBIR signed a Collaborative Agreement to develop joint initiatives last week.

José Ignacio Nieto, Minister of Health and Social Services the Communidad of La Rioja, Spain and Dr. Kieran Ryan, Programme Manager at REMEDI have signed a Collaboration Agreement to develop joint and complementary activities between the Center for Biomedical Research of La Rioja (CIBIR) and the National University of Ireland Galway, in order to further areas of common interest.

The initial project will establish a bioethical debating competition for schools in Spain modeled on the very successful Wellcome Trust-funded “Debating Science Issues” programme which has been coordinated by REMEDI for three years.

Danielle Nicholson, REMEDI Outreach Officer delivered a talk entitled “Debating Science Issues at School: A Proposal to Discuss Pedagogical Issues in School Science: An Educational Proposal” at La Rioja last week at the commencement of the joint project.
