10 conferences taught by professors of the Universitat de València will take place in February in several towns of la Ribera, l’Horta, el Camp de Túria, la Safor, la Meseta de Requena-Utiel and la Vall d’Albaida. This free event complements the academic course of Unisocietat. It is also accessible for the rest of society in each town and its surrounding areas.
This way academic formation is implemented throughout Unisocietat students’ life. It also invites citizens to join this university programme that during 2017-2018 course counts with more than 1500 students distributed among its ten offices.
These multidisciplinary talks given by professors of the Universitat de València show the wide variety of disciplines and scientific areas that are studied in the academic institution. The pension system, abuse, chauvinism, cybercrime, waste water purification, light pollution, the risks of pseudo-sciences, satirical press and the history of moriscos are some of the themes addressed during the conferences in February.
