Lab and science meetings are an attractive usual part of academic life. From Health Sciences Studies, an initiative (under the heading of 'Healthy Workshops') has been launched to meet periodically in the framework of research and innovation. Our meetings involve discussion of research related to the health sciences and other topics that may be of interest to a culture focused on the Knowledge Society and the use of digital technologies in different fields (education, health, etc.).

Our meetings provide an opportunity to share our own research as well as learn more about what our colleagues are doing; provide a venue for practicing presentation skills and providing and receiving constructive feedback in a supportive environment; and finally, provide a forum for communication about current progress, upcoming events and collaborative efforts.

The main purposes of the Healthy workshops are:

·         To know the research that is being carried out in our university.

·         To share ideas.

·         To disseminate information.

·         To nurture critical thinking.

·         To foster a sense of participation and integration among all members of our studies and University.

Everyone is welcome to attend!
