ChallenGen Project and CEAB at the XIV Firamar

by Maria Casso

Last weekend, the 20th-21st July, the Centre for Advanced Studies of Blanes (CEAB - CSIC) participated at the XIV Firamar of Sant Pol de Mar. The Firamar is a fair of artisans and activities related to the sea, like many research projects developed at the CEAB. Our ChallenGen Project, which is developed partially at the CEAB, got involved in the event.

As a member of the ChallenGen Project and the CEAB, I stayed in our stand at the fair during Saturday afternoon, explaining the work researchers conduct at the CEAB about invasive species, climate change, conservation, ecology and biodiversity. It was really nice to see how interested are many people on our job!
