Santiago Vallmitjana

University Chair of Applied Physics and Optics of the UB


“I am grateful for the support received from the very beginning from the Ambassadors Programme for the organisation of the WIO 2016 – Workshop on Information Optics.”

Miquel Pons

University Chair of Organic Chemistry of the UB


“The ‘Ambassadors Programme’ of the Catalunya Convention Bureau is an important initiative for boosting the role of Catalonia in attracting scientific excellence.”


Jacob González-Solís

Doctor in the Department of Animal Biology of the UB


6th Annual International Conference of Albatrosses and Petrels (Barcelona, September 2016)

“It is the first time that this congress was held in Europe and the local effect attracted researchers from neighbouring countries and gave visibility to species from a Mediterranean perspective. The Organising Committee that I led was made up of eight scientists, among which were doctorate students who benefitted greatly from the experience. We took on the majority of tasks, but delegated the processing of registrations. The congress brought together 160 people and we sought spaces that would make it special, such as the auditorium of the UB for the speeches or the Fabra Observatory for the welcome reception. We believe that the conference will be remembered and they have increased our prestige within the scientific community: we are now an international reference. With this in mind, we want to thank the University of Barcelona for the organisational facilities they have given us.”

Josep Maria Reniu i Vilamala

Head of Studies of Political Science and Administration of the UB


“For the working meeting of deans and heads of studies of the degree courses in Political Sciences and Administration from all over the state, we asked for help from the Ambassadors Programme. We wanted to offer our visitors material about the potential of our country in the organisation of work events —in our case, academic—, that at the same time was enriched by a very relevant cultural and leisure offer. The Programme enables the attendees to have a quality view of the possibilities that Catalonia and, specifically, Barcelona, offers the visitor”.

Dr. Omar Andrés

Board Member of the Spanish Society of Angiology and Vascular Surgery


“Thanks to the effort of the organising committee and the inestimable assessment of the Catalunya Convention Bureau through the Ambassadors Programme, this November in Girona we held the XI World Convention of Hispanic-Peruvian Doctors, which every year brings together doctors from Peru and all over Spain.”

Sergio Nassarre

University Chair of Civil Law of the Rovira i Virgili University


“The support and collaboration offered helped me in the organisation for the time in Spain of the annual meeting of the Association of German Mortgage Banks.”

Lluís Ramió

Doctor in the Josep Trueta Hospital


“Thanks to the Ambassadors Programme I have been able to organise a state-wide congress of the medical sector with more than 100 attendees, with guarantees of support and assessment for it to be a complete success”.
