What brings together the chef Carme Ruscalleda, the artistic director of La Fura dels Baus, Pep Gatell, and the professor and researcher in computational neurosciences Idan Segev? The answer is easy: creativity, an essential tool for the efficient development of their professions. On Friday, 6 October, at 7.00 p.m., at the Aula Magna of the University of Barcelona, the three of them will talk about the concept of creativity, an aspect inherent to humanity.
