One of the main tasks of the HDBMB is the popularisation of molecular life sciences in the wider community, i.e. the promotion of the achievements of biochemistry and molecular biology and presentation of their benefits for the society.
With a desire to intensify these activities, in addition to the Science and Society Committee, HDBMB established a Public Relations Committee, whose task is to propose and implement activities related to the promotion and visibility of HDBMB.
The main task of the Science and Society Committee is to propose and implement activities related to cooperation of HDBMB with the wider scientific and general community, popularisation of molecular life sciences and encourage active participation of HDBMB in creating and implementing scientific policies in Croatia.
Thanks to the Science and Society Committee, several events have been organized for general public so far, but a particularly valuable and wide-ranging action was organized in 2016, as part of the celebration of the 40th Anniversary of HDBMB. Many members of the Society participated in the 40th Anniversary celebration and organized a series of lectures at institutes, faculties and schools in Osijek, Split, Rijeka and Zagreb in 2016.
About thirty members prepared popular science articles about their research that were published in a double issue of the journal for the popularization of the science Priroda (2016 1-2) dedicated to the Anniversary. In addition, a memorial poster Molecular Machinery was printed for schoolchildren and students, showing hundreds of crystal structures of proteins and important macromolecules that make up a living cell.
