Biennial City and Science at Fabra i Coats

Urban Science Hackathon (8 February, 10:30am-6pm)

Activity inviting participants to ‘hack’ the format of a parliamentary simulation according to the principles of design justice; a perspective that places the focus on the way in which design reproduces or challenges the matrices of domination. The idea is to start from urban science projects and, through established committees, work with the results so that knowledge, mediated through civic initiatives, can generate urban and community policies delegated by public administration or any other agency with regulatory powers.

Advancement of urban science at national level (8 February, 10am-5pm)

This will be the last meeting of the group of experts for the promotion of urban science from the Fundación Ibercivis and the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT). The session will culminate with an activity open to the public.


Places are limited. Previous registration required. More information here



Civic laboratories and knowledge creation (8 February, 6-7:30 pm)

This is a collaborative and participatory space for rethinking how new and socially robust knowledge can be constructed and in what way the combination and inclusion of different agents can multiply individual knowledge. There will be discussion of the experiences developed around this subject in, among other places, Barcelona, Zaragoza and Madrid, and the results of the meeting of experts and the urban science Hackathon will be made public.


This event involves participation from Chema Blanco, Elisabetta Brogglio, Emanuele Cozzo, Antonio Lafuente, Francisco Sanz and Silvia Valle Estivill.

In Physics there's a place for you (11 February, 11am-5pm)

To celebrate the International Day of Women and Children in Science, leading researchers from the Institut de Física d’Altes Energies (IFAE) are organising a Particle physics workshop with female students and teachers from 1r and 2n of the baccalaureate (equivalent of ‘A’ Levels). Here they will learn how the ATLAS experiment works, rediscover the Higgs boson, learn about available tools for studying the subatomic world and celebrate the crucial contributions made by numerous women to Fundamental Physics.


Limited places. Previous registration required. More information here
