Promoting scientific understanding.
OIBC’s vision is a World in which wider access to scientific learning brings better health and quality of life. It seeks to realise this through educational projects for all generations and especially for the young, building greater understanding of biomedical and other scientific issues.
OIBC’s programmes (Scientists in Schools, Cafe des Sciences, Summer Schools) bring together leading experts with schools and adults, via seminars, lectures and debates, promoting better communication skills and awareness, especially among disadvantaged youngsters. It particularly seeks to inspire young people to a greater interest in further study of the sciences and to considering the opportunities of science-based careers.
OIBC values its independence, its non-political, charitable status and its expert scientific leadership. We value the acquisition of knowledge by all, and we value the enhancement of education and awareness, best practice and management of life skills, which contribute significantly to public health and well-being.
