Eirís International School is the only school in La Coruña classified in the national phase of the Investiga I+D+i Program.

The 4th-year ESO (Compulsory Secondary Education) students from Eirís International School were selected among more than 1,300 participants, all 16 years old, from all over Spain who applied for this edition of the INVESTIGA I+D+i Program. Thanks to this, they had the opportunity to attend the INVESTIGA I+D+i Congress, which was held over three days in Madrid.

During these days, the participants attended an opening ceremony at the CSIC (Spanish National Research Council) in which Pura Fernández, Deputy Vice President of Scientific Culture and Director of the CSIC Publishing House; Bárbara Fernández, Deputy Director General of Research of the Community of Madrid; members of the organization and sponsors; and a recorded message from Pilar Alegría, Minister of Education, Vocational Training, and Sports, participated.

Our students, in a truly collaborative spirit, worked alongside their peers and with the guidance of participants from previous editions and esteemed CSIC experts to prepare their presentations. This unique opportunity allowed them to not only share their knowledge but also to engage in insightful discussions with renowned researchers such as Elisa Martín Garijo (ICT expert), Ignacio Cruz (Energy Systems expert), Pedro Amalio Serena (Nanotechnology expert), and Adolfo Muñoz Carrero (E-Health and Telemedicine expert).

On the last day, during the closing ceremony of the congress held at CaixaForum in Madrid, the participants from each research line delivered their presentations. At the end of each one, there was a question-and-answer session that allowed the entire research group to participate.

Over the course of the three-day congress, our students were immersed in the world of scientific research, gaining a unique perspective on the inner workings of a scientific congress and the pivotal role of research in science and technology. On a personal level, they forged invaluable connections with participants from diverse autonomous communities, a testament to the universal language of science.
