To future-proof themselves, scientists must have strength of character and a set of flexible personal skills that enable them to respond to unpredictable environments and multiple pressures: just having excellent technical skills is no longer enough to be an excellent scientist. The ability to work with others, listen, adapt and be tolerant of differences are skills that are learned through life experience, but they can be improved and enriched if we focus on them.
The PRBB Intervals programme has a dual purpose. Firstly, it provides learning opportunities that support personal and professional development, enabling all our staff to become more effective influencers, whatever their current or future role in society.
Secondly, it encourages relationship-building between people in all the PRBB centres, across disciplines and profiles.
Last year, the Intervals programme ran 36 courses involving a total of 450 places. Course attendees gave very positive feedback, with 90% of them rating the courses as excellent or very good.
The programme is organised into three thematic learning areas:
The PRBB Auditorium is designed for scientific conferences. It is located high up, in the heart of the PRBB building and overlooking the sea. It has a separate access and holds up to 250 people.
Four rooms for conferences, seminars, workshops and training sessions are available on the ground floor with independent access from the inner courtyard of the building. They have natural lighting and hold between 30 and 90 participants in a theatre-style layout. The seminar rooms are named after some of the most important scientists in history: Marie Curie, Charles Darwin, Ramón y Cajal, and Rita Levi-Montalcini.
For events that do not require a formal, closed space, you can rent the building’s various terraces and inner square, as well as other areas.
The PRBB Consortium is a public entity (see the Transparency Portal) and is subject to the public procurement regime. By following the link below you can access the PRBB Consortium contractor profile on the public procurement services platform of the Generalitat de Catalunya.
This website publishes all the tenders processed by the PRBB Consortium, as well as the tender awards and formalisations of contracts, including minor contracts.
At the PRBB we want to provide an environment that celebrates diversity and helps all scientists, regardless of their gender, background or other circumstances, to develop their careers and conduct excellent research.
The PRBB's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee, which includes representatives from all six centres, is responsible for catalysing the development of inter-institutional initiatives that raise awareness and promote an environment of truly equal opportunities. Among other things, it has developed some free resources aimed at increasing the visibility of women scientists and encouraging an interest in science in girls, boys and adolescents.
In addition, the PRBB has installed gender-neutral toilet facilities, a nursing room, and has made agreements with local nurseries for staff and visitor discounts.
It is essential that researchers manage their well-being, and do not isolate themselves or risk exhaustion. In collaboration with all the centres in the park, the PRBB seeks to promote a healthy working environment where the well-being of all staff, including their physical, mental and social health, is seen as a key element in achieving research excellence.
Many of the activities currently taking place are ideas that came from the residents themselves. The PRBB supports these because they help create connections and synergies, and they bring together the PRBB’s diverse community.
These activities have been temporarily canceled due to the exceptional situation caused by COVID-19.
The PRBB Beach Volleyball Championship is the park’s biggest social event.
Each year, more than 500 people in 90 teams take part in the tournament with matches held every day over a four-month period (April to July).→ https://bvprbb.org
The PRBB Orchestra was founded in March 2015 and has been growing and improving since then. There are three rehearsals each month, usually on Wednesdays from 1:30 pm to 3 pm in the auditorium. Borja Mascaró Vidal conducts, and the repertoire is a mix of classical and popular music, where the different parts are generally transcribed and adapted to the levels of the individual musicians.
Any resident can join the PRBB choir. You don’t need musical knowledge or experience, only the desire to sing! The choir is conducted by Oscar Salvador, and there is a weekly rehearsal, on Thursdays from 6 pm to 8 pm, in one of the rooms off the inner square.→ http://music.prbb.org
“Stress-free Mornings with Yoga” is on the menu every Tuesday and Thursday from 8 am to 9 am. The Hatha Yoga classes are conducted in English by a certified teacher and are suitable for all levels, including beginners. Just wear comfortable clothes and bring a yoga mat.
The yoga sessions are free and exclusive to residents.→ mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
In 2013, a group of PRBB researchers decided to do their bit to make the world a better place. The results are the eagerly awaited Incubators solidarity breakfasts, held each month in the building's inner courtyard.
One member of the group chooses a charity, calls his fellow Incubakers, makes a poster and organises a fantastic solidarity breakfast. When the bake sale is over, they transfer the money to the chosen NGO and that's it; sweet and simple.→ https://www.facebook.com/incubakers
Each April the PRBB celebrates Healthy Week. Various sporting activities, workshops and talks for residents are organised in the park in collaboration with the PRBB centres, Clece Restauración and Claror Marítim sports centre.
The programme includes around 15 different activities to encourage the park’s residents to have good habits and healthy behaviour.
Under the slogan "Be Healthy", the PRBB tries to promote healthy diets. Once a month, residents find fresh, seasonal fruit on the tables in the hallways of each floor.
Organic products are also available from the vending machines on each floor.
The PRBB is a member of Barcelona + Sostenible, a network of more than 1,000 organisations committed to social, environmental and economic sustainability, which collectively build a city that is responsible to both the environment and people. The PRBB is committed to the energy efficiency and sustainability of the building, and carries out regular improvement works in the facilities, as well as awareness-raising campaigns that involve small gestures and habit changes that can achieve long-term benefits, without sacrificing top-level research.
The PRBB Inter-centre Commission for the Prevention of Occupational Hazards (CIPRL-PRBB) comprising prevention specialists from all the centres, coordinates the prevention activity, carries out awareness-raising campaigns and provides information for park residents. The prevention objectives also encompass workers from external companies, collaborators and users, who must comply with the regulations that apply to all the PRBB centres.
If you have to carry out an activity at the PRBB, you must request information on preventing occupational risks and coordinating business activities, by contacting email@example.com.
The PRBB also has a Biosafety Committee that evaluates scientific projects involving the use of GMOs or biological agents, and a Self-Protection Plan that includes instructions to be followed in the event of an emergency, to minimise the possible harm to people, the building and the environment.
