metropolis lying on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
The UAB promotes innovation, employability and entrepreneurship. It strives to foster research and transfer in all areas of knowledge and works closely together with the surrounding business and industrial community, as well as with scientific centres such as the Alba Synchrotron Light Facility, located five minutes away from campus.
The university actively encourages the involvement and participation of its students in volunteering activities and community service, and has been recognised by several institutes for these tasks. It also carries out awareness-raising campaigns among the university community.
Located on the historical site of the Hospital de la
Santa Creu i Sant Pau, the Casa Convalescència building is managed by
the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institutions like the Fundació
UAB, UAB Idiomes Barcelona, the Fundació Ageing&Health and the Institut
de Ciències de l'Educació de la UAB, all have their headquarters here.
Casa Convalescència offers a variety of spaces for the organisation of conferences, conventions, meetings, seminars, courses and other events. Fully endowed with all necessary services and equipment, the building also has its own restaurant and catering service. Please note that the venue is Casa Convalescència, a venue which forms part of the UAB but it is not situated in the Campus in Cerdanyola del Valles, as this building is actually in the main city in Barcelona.
