The Barcelona Knowledge Hub (BKH) is the branch office of Academia Europaea (AE) for the Mediterranean and Southern European region, including Turkey and Israel. The main goal of the AE-BKH is the promotion of activities of interest for the Members of AE in its area of influence, for the larger scientific community, and for the general public, with special emphasis on multi-disciplinary activities that include transversal perspectives of the natural and exact sciences, the social sciences and the humanities. The vision of the AE-BKH is to help consolidate a genuine European area of research, education and innovation.

Examples of the activities organised and/or hosted by the AE-BKH, many of which have become staples of its annual programming ever since the Hub began its operations in 2013, include: AE-BKH Women’s Week; Building Bridges, the AE Annual Conference; Disputatio of Barcelona, an international debate of academic relevance; the Barcelona Hypatia European Science Prize, in collaboration with the Barcelona City Council within the framework of its Barcelona Science Plan; the Fernando González Bernáldez Lecture and Prize, in collaboration with the Fernando González Bernáldez Foundation; the Barcelona Dialogue summer programme, in collaboration with Northeastern University; and numerous seminars, round 15 table discussions, concerts, documentary films and exhibits, etc., often in collaboration with local and/or foreign academic institutions.

The AE-BKH has an International Advisory Committee. Currently it is formed by the following persons: Enric Banda, Pedro García-Barreno, M. Dolores García Ramón, Ramon Gomis, Sergiu Hart, Yvon Le Maho, Genoveva Martí, Marc Mayer Olivé, Maria Paradiso, Regina Revilla, and Rosalia Vargas.


The AE-BKH was created by three local partner organisations in 2012, namely: the Barcelona City Council, the Government of Catalonia (Universities and Research Secretariat) and “la Caixa” Banking Foundation. Since it started operating in 2013, the AE-BKH has hosted its activities thanks to the support of these partners.
