Dear / Dec,

The Institute of Government and Public Policy at the Autonomous University of Barcelona aims to promote research and training in the field of government and public policy, from an interdisciplinary perspective, especially, with the intention that their activities would lead to social progress.

Do good research also involves open communication channels with the academic community and the final recipients of the same. That's why a year ago we celebrated the first day of presentation and discussion of research projects. Researchers spoke to us of its objectives and the doubts, both theoretical and methodological, had posed. Not to mention what they expect in terms of scientific impact and social.

Given the success of the initiative, we wanted to repeat, and this time with a direct involvement of the two research groups consolidated IGOP, that of Urban governance, Commons, Internet and Social Innovation (URGOCIS), d'a band, i d 'analysis, Management and Public Policy Evaluation (AGAPP), the other. It will be a day of reflection and encounter, open to all those interested in social research and policy.

Will be Friday 8 d'APRIL a l'Escola de l'IGOP, Passeig d'Urrutia 17 from Barcelona. We will be very happy to count on your participation.
