Disruptive innovation workshop "UAB Reptes 2023"
The world is full of social and environmental challenges and the UAB aims to be part of the solution. After the success of previous editions, the University organises the "UAB Reptes 2023" with the objective of getting students and alumni involved in reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Thus, this ideas generation workshop promotes working in multidisciplinary teams to come up with projects capable of meeting the needs of these social and environmental challenges.
The event will take place on 28 February from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the study hall of the RR Building, located at the Plaça Cívica (above the cafeteria). It is conceived as a disruptive innovation workshop in which participants will be grouped into teams with members of the different teaching centres to tap into their creativity and find a solution to the challenges presented. It will also include the guidance of David Hernández Salazar, design and strategic innovation technician from the UAB Research Park's Entrepreneurship Unit.

Bioblitz UAB: to find plants and animals at the campus
All those interested can sign up until 21 March to participate in the UAB's second edition of Bioblitz, in continuation of the citizen science initiative organised to evaluate the biodiversity found on campus held last year.
The new edition will allow to gather more information on the environments and organisms found on the university campus. This unique opportunity allows participants to learn methodologies used in the study of nature which are often difficult to discover up close. Participants will be able to collaborate in creating a sample of different groups of plants and animals under the guidance of expert field biologists, who will show them how to study different types of living beings.
The project is funded by Fundació Autònoma Solidària (FAS) in collaboration with the UAB's Environmental Office.

International Workshop on Computational Nanotechnology
The UAB organises the 22nd edition of the International Workshop on Computational Nanotechnology (IWCN), a scientific meeting that aims to present and debate current trends and future directions in computational nanotechnology in the simulation of nanostructures, nanomaterials and nanodevices. An eminently interdisciplinary field involving areas such as electronics, engineering, physics, applied mathematics, chemistry and biology.
The workshop will be organised in a single-session format with different guest speakers, oral presentations, special sessions, forums and poster presentations on a variety of topics.
On 11 and 12 June, immediately before the IWCN, a satellite workshop entitled the International Wigner Workshop (IWW) will take place to discuss the application of the Wigner function in the descirption of several quantum processes in the fields of physics, chemistry and engineering.
Deadlines for participating can be found at the following link: https://iwcn2023.uab.es/deadlines.html
