Scientific vocations: from astronauts to James Bond

How do scientific vocations awake? What did researchers wanted to be when they were little? The video Scientific vocations: from astronauts to James Bond collects the testimonies of 24 researchers from the Universitat Jaume I. Astronaut, teacher, veterinarian, psychologist, actress, football player or James Bond: researchers’ vocations were varied and in most cases their scientific career appeared later, although many of them agree in stating that since they were young they had a curious and inquisitive nature.

The video has been produced by the Scientific Culture and Innovation Unit at the Universitat Jaume I, attached to the Communication and Publications Service, under the project “We do excellent science. Audiovisual promotion of high-performance research groups at the Universitat Jaume I” developed through the collaboration of the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) of the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and the companies Iproma and Facsa from Gimeno Servicios group. The project has been completed with four videos about high-performance research groups at the Universitat Jaume I, a video in which the research staff reflects on the contribution of science to society and 15 videos of scientific vocabulary in which they explain terms related to research work of each of the groups. In order to promote accessibility for all people and internationalization, all audiovisual products are subtitled in Spanish for the deaf and hard-of hearing and in English.
