Barcelona Ciència i Universitats. Ajuntament de Barcelona

Barcelona Science and Universities is the initiative of the Barcelona City Council to promote knowledge and to involve citizens in its development. Its main objective is to involve both research professionals and citizens in the approach, processes and results of research, under criteria such as ethics, transparency, equality and open access to knowledge. Based on this vision, the city becomes the stage where science and society meet to have dialogue, to understand and advance together, and to make a combined effort to confront the local and global challenges of the 21st century.
