The Cross-Disciplinary Workshop on Sustainability is an annual conference open to the entire university community in which an issue associated with the Sustainable Development Goals is approached from an interdisciplinary perspective. It gives teaching staff and students from all degree programmes a forum for reflecting on and sharing research projects.
Through conferences, round tables, workshops and scientific posters, the workshop provides information and calls on participants to reflect and adopt more sustainable habits. All UIC Barcelona students are invited to develop research projects related to the topic under discussion and present their results in the form of a scientific poster or workshop as part of this research project contest. The projects are a curricular assignment in several different subjects. This workshop has been held every year since 2009-2010.
