The UdL Summer University offers a virtual course in collaboration with Algeria
As the Vice-rector for Cultural Activities and University Planning Jaume Barrull and the organiser of the Summer University Eva Martín explained, the seventeenth edition of the UdL Summer University offers 41 courses, seven more than in last year’s edition. As usual, the majority of them will take place in La Seu D'urgell, although Lleida, Seròs, Tremp, Erill la Vall, Solsona and Arbeca will also host courses. Moreover, this year a new venue will be added: Àger will host the course “A glance into the Universe”, which will take place in the Montsec Astronomical Park
Coinciding with the celebration of 2009 as the International Year of Astronomy, the firmament will also be the protagonist of the opening speech of the Summer University, which will take place in the “El Passeig” Community Centre of La Seu d’Urgell on the 14th July at 8 p.m. Salvador J. Ribas, Scientific Director of the Montsec Astronomical Park, will pronounce a lecture entitled Astronomy: an image is worth more than a thousand words. An exhibition about immigration in the capital of the Alt Urgell County, which bears the title Venue of the World, will also be inaugurated. The exhibition consists of photographs taken by students during the course taught by the photojournalist Sandra Balcells in the 2008 edition of UdL Summer University.
