On this weekly Twitter selection, we highlight Wednesday 31 celebration of the UOC Research Showcase 2017, held in CosmoCaixa in Barcelona. The event aims to foster collaboration among the University’s R&I professionals by improving the visibility of the current research and projects. This showcase raises awareness of the progress of the University’s research, development and innovation activities among its community. In a university-wide call for proposals the Research and Innovation Scientific Committee selected 21 research and innovation projects to be presented. The selection criteria focused on scientific quality and interdisciplinarity. The Research Showcase 2017 regards on the diversity of research areas the UOC is active inand has been chaired by the UOC President, Josep A. Planell, and the UOC Vice President for Strategic Planning and Research, Marta Aymerich.

Two presentations have been awarded (one selected by the organization and the other voted by the audience). The prizes consisted of two research funds endowed with 1,000 euros each, to be spent during 2017. In the afternoon there was a round-table discussion open to the general public entitled Open Access to Research Outputs.
