The meeting will take place in the Auditorium of the CosmoCaixa Science Museum. CosmoCaixa occupies the premises of what was the first interactive Science Museum in Spain, inaugurated in 1981.The building, designed and built between 1904 and 1909, is a beautiful example of modernist architecture. The modern extension carried out in 2004 highlighted the value of the century-old building while placing it in a new context.

The venue is adapted for people with reduced mobility.

Cosmocaixa can be reached from the nearest metro station (Av. Tibidabo, Linia L7 FGC) by a 10-minute walk, and also by the buses lines H4, V13, V15, 22, 73, 75, 60 and 196
