PRBB. Charles Darwin Room
(C. Doctor Aiguader, 88 - 08003 Barcelona)

The workshop will be divided in two parts: an open session during the morning and an internal meeting during the afternoon.

The morning session includes two discussions:

  1. The first one aimed at influencing the EU agenda, in particular taking the opportunity of the Spanish Presidency and the outcome of the 2023 Spanish general election held on July 23 and its implications for the campaign for the European Elections 2024. The discussion will focus on how to promote the engagement of the Spanish government in the promotion of Global Health more actively, starting by the implementation of the EU Global Health Strategy.
  2. The second discussion will be centered around the role of scientific advocacy in providing evidence to policy making, in particular ISGlobal’s, using the review of the EU Air Quality Directives as an example.
