The purpose of project is to create an internet television dedicated to present Science from the side of the researchers, specially through the ones that work on the edge of knowledge. tries to represent in a reliable way, both cutting-edge science and the work of scientists. Excellence and internationality are its basic principles. produces a flow of information. It will not therefore be a repository of videos, it will offer several channels: Principal, Staff, Focus and Relations, each one dedicated and focused different from the work of leading scientists. Some of the programs that are on the way: "Thrill" (the thrill of discovery), "I scientist" (what triggered the decision to become a scientist?), "Crossover" (talks between scientists from different fields), "Deeper" (a topic in depth), "Structure" (personal appearances by a research), "Reflection" (personal thoughts). will try to be an entertaining and aesthetically attractive television. Each program will be individually designed and will use its own music. will be aimed at anyone interested in true science, how science is done and what emotions play in the creative process.

The project InScience is partly motivated by the flow of talent visiting the Science Center Benasque Pedro Pascual CCBPP). This nonprofit Foundation hosts high-level meetings, organizing international conferences and workshops. It takes 15 years in operation and is supported by major Spanish scientific institutions, CSIC and MICINN and by the Government of Aragón, the Universidad de Zaragoza and the city of Benasque. The direction of this project is to M. T. Soto-Sanfiel and J. I. Latorre
