Research Evenings - Cycles of Life

11 from June 2021 from 19:30 to 21:30

Vil·la Urània Civic Center

In person (by prior registration)

Share with research professionals an evening to imagine and exchange knowledge about the urban challenges facing the city of Barcelona. In a relaxed and close format, we will be able to imagine possible innovative solutions around people's life cycles.

The session will start with a brief explanation of some of the research avenues that are being carried out right now in the city and will continue with an agora open to the public to share impressions and discuss possible perspectives and approaches to research.

Afternoons in the fresh air, with built-in bar service and two hours to imagine how to transform Barcelona.
