Work Enviroment

We are a small research group bringing together worldwide researchers from many disciplines. The work environment is friendly, flexible, and partially remote if desired. We challenge you to see for yourself with a small visit.

Our offices are located in Castelldefels, close to the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona in Catalunya. Catalunya is a very small country in the northeast of Spain with everything from countryside villages to big cites, from high mountains to work beach areas. So, you can decide what you like the most!

If you want to know more about the team, workplace or Catalunya, please drop us an email, we can arrange a call.
