Scientific Advisory Council (CAC)
Barcelona City Council has a Scientific Advisory Council made up of leading figures from the city's scientific and research community, which advises it on the implementation of the scientific policies it promotes.
The Council is made up of 14 personalities from the different universities and research centres present in the city, appointed by the mayor’s office. This Council meets regularly three times a year, and the Deputy Mayor for Economy, Finance and Economic Promotion chairs the meetings.
Among other aspects, it advises in the field of research and calls for grants and support promoted by the City Council, in the design of major scientific events such as the City and Science Biennial or other activities linked to art and science, among others. It also accompanies the development of projects and actions aimed at making Barcelona an attractive science city and a benchmark both nationally and internationally.
