From the CREB UPC – Research Centre for Biomedical Engineering we collaborated at the Post-Pandemia Journeys of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, to reflect on the effects, opportunities and challenges originated by #covid19 in the health system. We celebrated the second conference via Meet. moderated by our current director Alex Perera and our former director Dani Tost.

The homepage we replace has given good service to the CREB | UPC, providing useful information about our research center. The page has been well-liked and well-used. But it was time to make some changes, and with the incorporation of the new director Alex Perera, the right moment has come to prepare the Research Centre for new challenges and provide the best service and information to our audiences. First, we wanted to make the website more informative and easily accessible; at CREB|UPC we prize utility, practicality, serendipity and exploration. We also wanted to clean up the navigation structure, creating a navigation system designed to orient visitors and get them where they want to go.
