Science Academy is the new training proposal of the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation with a wide variety of scientific programs to respond to the challenges of a new era. We work with excellence, rigor and passion to promote the critical spirit, curiosity, creativity, innovation and empowerment of thousands of girls, boys, young people and professionals in Catalonia and around the world.
What is Science Academy?
It is a new initiative of the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation that concentrates all the potential of knowledge and expertise of the institution in various fields, through training projects, scientific dissemination, and the promotion of scientific talent and vocations.
Science Academy offers quality training, based on the experience of the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation in various areas of expertise acquired through years of work by teams with great capabilities in knowledge and education, science, territorial management, environment, culture, communication and social suport.

We collaborate with different organizations. Most of the projects collaborate with different research centers at national and international level.
Furthermore, schools are very important for our projects because they can help us to find talented students to then promote their scientific and professional vocations.
