From 21 to 26 February, Barcelona will be holding the third edition of the City and Science Biennial, with a wide-ranging programme of popular science activities to bring science closer to society.


The event, which this year will focus on living, is curated by ICTA-UAB researcher Helen Cole, and will include the participation of different scientists from our centre.

For six days, conferences, workshops, guided tours, artistic performances, seminars and debates will invite you to reflect on the fact that we live in a time full of challenges of all kinds and on all scales, and on how to address, from a scientific perspective, the crises to which we are exposed today.

The Biennial will focus on the science that observes the relationships of our species with the natural, human, and digital environment. It will offer an active and proactive vision of that science that promotes relationships, coexistence and brings us closer together. That which encourages participation and opens the door to greater citizen involvement.

Cities, where most of the population lives today, will appear as the preferred scenario, with the tensions and contradictions that this entails, and with the science that should allow us to resolve them, connecting diverse fields of knowledge, such as social, environmental and health sciences.
