*Once the registrations are closed, a form will be sent to choose the topic to work on. The working groups will be in Spanish or English, depending on the expert leading them.

At the end of the day, the reflections will be captured in a graphic document that will bring together the work of all the groups and will serve to multiply the scope of the UNIV Lab's conclusions. The aim is for this output to have a real impact, both on the participants of the meeting and on their environment.
