Collective Intelligence Conference
@ UPC-Barcelona Tech

POSTPONED: Until further notice

This conference will bring together a variety of stakeholders and practitioners from different European Institutions to exchange and discuss the welcoming and onboarding processes for international master’s and doctoral students. A decision regarding when the conference will take place will occur when Europe finds itself in a more stable environment.

What is a Collective Intelligence Conference?

A Collective Intelligence Conference provides an interactive platform where different topics are discussed, ideas shared, and best practices presented with the goal of producing results that are both collective and intelligent. The goal of this event is to plan and design the most suitable welcome and orientation programs for international master’s and doctoral students. The conference program includes interactive sessions with international students and stakeholders along with plenary talks and world cafés designed to maximize exchange of ideas and projects.

Rodalies Renfe

Note: This is not very convenient if you arrive to terminal 1, as the train departs from terminal 2 and you would need to take the shuttle from T1 to T2 and after take the train. Even in terminal 2, you have to walk a bit until you reach the train station, whereas the Aerobus stop is just outside airport terminals 1 and 2.

Another option would be to take a taxi or Uber from the airport to your hotel. This will cost between 30 and 45 euros.

Further details about transportation to and from the airport can be found on the Barcelona Airport website.

Hotel -> UPC Campus Nord

The closest metro stations to UPC Campus Nord are “Palau Reial” and “Zona Universitaria”; both can be found on the L-3 metro line (green line). You can buy a “T-casual” transportation card in the machines at the entrance of the metro stations or at the tram station.

You can find your way to UPC Campus Nord easily via Google maps.
