Open Day 2018
Saturday, October 6, 2018 - NEW TIMETABLE, ONLY IN THE MORNING!
The Barcelona Biomedical Research Park, in its 11th edition, will open our doors to the public on the 6th of October. PRBB scientists and staff will explain what we do, how we do it and where we do it. We will play with science, talk about the projects we work on, show you our laboratories as well as the equipment that we use and walk through the building.
We propose you to spend the day having fun with science and getting to know a large infrastructure of the city and those who work in it.
And everything for free and for the whole family.
