Pompeu Fabra University inaugurates the Gutenberg Campus for Communication and Scientific Culture

[22/06/11]

On 14 and 15 September at the Communication Campus of Pompeu Fabra University (UPF) the first edition will take place of the Gutenberg Campus, a summer school aiming to promote the various channels and formats currently used to foster culture and scientific disclosure in all fields: the media, social networks and 2.0 webs, blogs, comics, the publishing world, education circles, cinema, museology, public and institutional communication, etc., and to reflect on the changes occurring and new work opportunities appearing in the area. The campus will be bilingual and will basically focus on activities carried out in Catalonia, although the participation is envisaged of professionals and guests from throughout the country.

The initiative, brought about by the Observatori de la Comunicació Científica (OCC-UPF), the Master's in Scientific Communication IDEC-UPF and the Obra Social “la Caixa”, has been created with the intention of becoming a yearly fixture serving as a meeting point for all those working in the field of communication and the disclosure of science, with particular emphasis on the new generations of professionals, so they might become familiar with the activities being carried out in this sector and come into contact with those who have already been in the area for some time. Therefore, it is aimed at journalists, communicators, educators and professionals from within the sector, as well as alumni and new students on the Master's in Scientific Communication IDEC-UPF, and students from other disciplines related to and/or interested in the disclosure of science.

The programme will include a wide range of activities –discussions, round tables, films and theatre sessions, open air acts, conferences, etc.- to take place in parallel, as well as workshops and various activities of a cultural and recreational nature. Several rooms will also be reserved for group meetings and networking with participants and guests.

Registration is free of charge, and is open from the end of June until mid-September through the web page of the Gutenberg Campus, to be set up shortly.
