ATRAC - Projectes de Reflexió al Palau Macaya 2020-2021, funded by Fundació la Caixa 

Workshops, Debates and Seminars at Palau Macaya, 2020-2021

A call to fund proposals is held every year by “Fundació la Caixa” with the aim of fostering dialogue and reflection on the subject of human development and sustainability. The UAB won a proposal named ‘ATRAC’ to be part of their 'Projectes de Reflexió 2020-202' at Palau Macaya, Barcelona.  The ATRAC proposal was based on the H2020 EU funded projects TRACTION and SO-CLOSE and seeks to foster debate between different agents working for the reception of migrants in order to find a shared challenge and evaluate the impact of new technologies on designing and testing new models of interaction. To this end, international experts, people involved in university projects, public administrations, young migrants, entities and companies, NGOs and citizens will participate.

All of these activities were originally due to be held face-to-face at Palau Macaya in Barcelona, Spain. Due to restrictions brought about by COVID-19,  some of these events will now take place online. For more information and updates please contact JosepOriol.Lopez.Plana@uab.cat or Susannah.Fraser@uab.cat.
