During all the program (July 4th to 15th 2022), the students will be hosted in ÀGORA BCN International University Residence, located in a privileged setting closely connected with the heart of the city downtown.

The participants, and their accompanying staff, will commute from there to the research centers distributed around the city and in the outskirts of Barcelona where they will develop the research projects. The program also includes cultural and social activities that will take place in different points of interest in the city.

Both the Opening and Closing Ceremonies are held at the UNESCO World Heritage Site La Pedrera - Casa Milà, a building designed by the genius architect Antoni Gaudí, that is the headquarters of Science Academy-Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation. Here, the participants have the opportunity to enjoy scientific dissemination lectures, workshops, and debates; as well as make the final presentation of their project's results on the last day of campus when families and researchers are invited to attend.

Three main meals per day are included (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). Breakfast is at 8 a.m., lunch at 1 p.m. and dinner at 8 p.m. Breakfast and dinner are in ÀGORA BCN International University Residence.
