The School includes visits to pharmaceutical companies and Science Parks in Barcelona and Toulouse.

The opening ceremony has been graced by the presence of Jordi Quintana, organizer and chairman of the SSM scientific committee; Pierre Raynaud, director of the French Institute, Fernando Albericio, general director of the Barcelona Science Park, Jordi Vaquer, director of the Center for International Studies of Barcelona and representatives from the French consulate in Barcelona.

A team of 40 teachers and students from six countries and eleven nationalities will participate in this initiative. The second edition of the SSM will take place in Toulouse (France).
