Universo Sostenible

Nine episodes make up this seventh season, which is co-produced by Crue Spanish Universities and headed by the Universitat de València. They are available for viewing on the web platforms of the 26 participating universities.

The topics of this new season will be Long COVID, 3D printing, the medicine of complexity, wood as a sustainable material, microbiota, skin diseases, space debris and the restoration of degraded ecosystems.

As in previous seasons, experts from the scientific community will explain the key elements of progress in research related to technological advances with an important future impact in a way everyone can understand.

The Adventure of Knowledge project (orig, La Aventura de Saber) aims to share rigorous knowledge about our current reality with the public so that we may be more critical and responsible for our decisions. On the other hand, this new multiplatform project will also allow us to learn how public reacts to the scientific projects presented.
