29 March

On 29 March we offer the second lecture in the series organized in collaboration with the Amics de la Unesco de Barcelona, to speak with paediatrician and ISGlobal researcher Rosauro Varo on structural violence in relation to colonization, health, and bioethics.

The aim of the talk is to contextualize and define concepts such as “racism” and “colonization” in relation to the basic principles of bioethics and ethics applied to medicine. He will also offer the vision of health workers in Africa, both national and foreign, as regards colonialism and its underlying racist ideology.

Discussion will focus on racism as the basis for Europe’s imperialist expansion in Africa in the nineteenth century and the effects it has had on the continent’s health and medical research systems ever since. The conference will explore colonial practices, the mechanisms of oppression and racist biases, examining their impact on the development of biomedical research.

March, 8 and 9

On March 8 and 9 we organize with the Americana Film Fest and the Department of Education of the Generalitat de Catalunya, two matinee sessions to promote bioethical reflection among students of schools and institutes.


On this occasion we will deal with the subject of artificial intelligence (AI) with the documentary "Artificial Immortality".  If you were able to create an immortal version of yourself, would you? Until this decade, that question was the stuff of science fiction, but now experts in the fields of artificial intelligence and robotics suggest it will indeed be possible.


This cinematic documentary explores the latest technological advancements in AI, robotics and biotech, and poses the question: what is the essence of the human mind, and can this be replicated? Or even more unsettling, could we one day meet cloned versions of ourselves – clones which are better, smarter, and immortal?






Complete capacity!


Activity subsidized in full

Adressed to High School Students

There are numerous initiatives designed to provide support for elderly people who live alone. Instruments based on artificial intelligence algorithms, social robotics, and apps relating to health or social issues... Are these all valid and do they reflect people's needs? Do they respect the autonomy and privacy of the citizens to whom they are addressed?


With the participation of: Jaime del Barrio, Óscar Belmonte, Antonio Caballer, Carme Torras, Carme Pratdepàdua, Ibán García, Oriol Farrés and Dolors Comas d'Argemir.
