Elisava's Masters and Postgraduate area organizes the second edition of Elisava Masters' Talks, a series of six conferences that will address the current reality of design from the professional experiences of different outstanding personalities in design, communication, architecture, art and innovation.

All of them are at the top of the lists and trends of contemporary design, engineering and creativity worldwide, a reality that connects with Elisava's commitment to research and innovation as a driver for creating initiatives such as this one.

Santiago Albert, Director of Elisava's School of Masters and Continuing Education, emphasizes: "Our mission as a university is to provide knowledge and have an impact on society. That is why we organize this series of lectures by leading professionals in design, engineering, technology and creativity, and we offer it not only to all our students, but also to the city of Barcelona in general".
