Elisava Plus



It is a training complement of the Degree that offers learning experiences to enhance projects in future scenarios in collaboration with companies and institutions of international reference. 

Elisava+ mixes theoretical contents (lectures, presentations) with practical experiences (visits, creative stage and workshops) with the aim of increasing the creative and technological capacities of undergraduate students and promoting connections in high quality environments. 

The programme is based on three modules, carried out at the end of each quarter of the course, which generate relevant learning experiences:

  • One-week workshop at the School
  • One-week workshop in a local creative or technological centre
  • Two weeks workshop in an international creative or technological centre
  • Coordinator/director of the programme: Xavi Mora/Ramon Llonch
  • Objectives: 
    • To know design contexts with specific requirements of materials, resources and tradition.
    • To connect human, material and natural heritage with innovation through creativity.
    • To define innovation projects through an interdisciplinary approach to global thematic areas, treated from a local work setting. Several places where one can explore suggestive and particular realities.
  • Content: Material culture, territory, network, context, new social and economic models.
