On Thursday 13 December a new edition of the LINK© event took place. This is the tenth year that UIC Barcelona has organised it. It was set up by the Innovation and Educational Quality Service and is open both to PAS and PDI staff. The main aim behind it is the exchange of experiences and the transmission of good practices.
The event began with a few words of welcome from the Vice-Rector for Academic Organisation and Teaching Staff, Dr Josep Clotet, where he looked back over the past ten years since this event began.
Subsequently Marta Crispí and Naghieli Amarista, who are the director and coordinator of the University Master’s Degree in Cultural Management respectively, then took the floor. The coordinator described the challenges of the master’s degree taught in the Faculty of Humanities and talked about the "UIC Barcelona Culture Factory” project.
