On 5 November, CosmoCaixa Barcelona hosted a new edition of the UOC Research Showcase. The UOC Research Showcase 2019, an internal UOC event, was hold on the morning of 5 November at Barcelona's CosmoCaixa. The theme for this year's event was the UN's 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The event formed part of the SDG Autumn being organized by the University and led on from the #ODSUOC event being held on 25 September.
The UOC believes that, faced with the current global challenges, it is vital that we reflect on how, in terms of research activities, we can contribute to social transformation and make progress towards fairer, more sustainable societies. The UOC wanted to use this year's Research Showcase to highlight how the R&I activity developed at the University has an impact on the 2030 Agenda, and to foster collaboration, synergies and interdisciplinary research among the teaching and research staff.
The Research and Innovation Committee was thus calling on all members of the UOC's teaching and research staff to share their research at the event. The proposed format involved presentations of under 10 minutes that answered the following questions:
a) What question does your research look to solve?
b) How do you carry out your research?
c) Who's involved?
d) What social transformation are you looking to bring about with your research?
The presentations were in English and responded to the statements of the parallel sessions:
Prizes of research funds worth €1,000 each were awarded to two of the presentations.
