Don’t miss your chance to be part of the first science diplomacy city strategy

Science and technology have become a crucial tool to tackle the most pressing global challenges. At the same time, cities have become early adopters of emerging technologies, testbeds for scientific change and autonomous diplomatic players. In this exciting context Barcelona is ready to take the lead.

Join us on November 6 in Gaudi’s magnificent La Pedrera for the presentation event “A Science and Technology Diplomacy for Barcelona”.

Featuring the presentation of the “Barcelona Manifesto for a city-led science and technology diplomacy”, the public launch of SciTech DiploHub, the panel “Cities, Science and Technology: A New Global Order” and a networking reception with Barcelona’s top science, technology and foreign affairs organizations and experts.
