This image bank has been designed by Andalusian Programme of Scientific Spreading of the Andalusian Ministry of Innovation, Science and Enterprise, and is coordinated by the Science Park of Granada.
Sciencepics is, in terms of volume of images, the first regional image bank in Spain. Sciencepics aims to become a useful tool to complement the various spreading and training actions carried out both by education centres (from primary education centres to universities), mass media and science and innovation spreading agents.
Sciencepics will provide visual support for scientific-related knowledge in digital (websites, CDs, etc.) or in print format.
Sciencepics is very easy to use- Images are grouped using as a reference the sectorial classification of research groups in Andalucía: Agriculture and Nutrition, Life Sciences, Health Sciences and Technology, Natural Resources and Environment, Economics, Social Sciences and Law, Humanities, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, Production Technologies, and Information and Communications Technologies. To download the images, users only need to key in the desired terms in the search engine.
Sciencepics contents are free, open and universal, and complement the Andalusian Programme of Scientific Spreading as a news agency since last 9 January. This service -also free of charge- already has 1,800 subscriptions for the Spanish version and 2,000 for the English version.
Sciencepics aims to be a cooperative tool, which can evolve thanks to contributions from other institutions and private individuals. The Andalusian Programme of Scientific Spreading will update the portal weekly. It will also be open to other institutions willing to share their image catalogues. To this end, a CD containing the selected photographs must be sent to the Andalusian Programme of Scientific Spreading.

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...
A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.
The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...
A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.
Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
Over the last decade, there has been much excitement about the discovery, recognised by the Nobel Prize in Physics only two years ago, that there are two types...
What if a sensor sensing a thing could be part of the thing itself? Rice University engineers believe they have a two-dimensional solution to do just that.
Rice engineers led by materials scientists Pulickel Ajayan and Jun Lou have developed a method to make atom-flat sensors that seamlessly integrate with devices...
