Due to the current situation caused by the COVID-19 crisis, Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation has suspended all teaching activities. However, we believe the situation will be back to normal by the dates set for the Campus and that we will have returned to normal teaching activity by then.

Ensuring the good health and well-being of everyone who participates in our activities is a top priority for Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation and the Alimentia Academy programme. If it is not possible to host the Science and Food Campus and the Foundation is obligated to cancel or postpone it, registration fees will be refunded.
