Last Tuesday 24 July, Gerardo Pisarello, the first deputy mayor of Barcelona, visited Barcelona Science Park (PCB) accompanied by Gemma Tarafa, the Health and Functional Diversity commissioner, and other city council members in order to see the park’s ecosystem first hand and to strengthen links intended to promote science in the city of Barcelona.
Barcelona Science Park is a benchmark in research and innovation in the European health sector and is part of Barcelona’s key scientific infrastructure, with a surface area of 100,000 m2, 110 public and private entities and an integrated community of over 2,700 researchers, entrepreneurs and professionals.
The welcome given to the city council members by Maria Terrades, CEO of PCB, and Anna Serra, Director of Marketing and Communication, enabled future strategies to be discussed regarding both the park and the city itself in terms of boosting science and innovation.
Whilst visiting the grounds, the group had the opportunity to see various facilities first hand, including othe Growth Control and Cancer Metastasis Lab, headed by Dr Roger Gomis at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona).
