Cultura and innovation conferences during the second edition of ‘Programa Experto’

For the second year running, Factoría Cultural, a hotbed for cultural activities in the Matadero arts centre in Madrid, is holding a series of conferences on culture and innovation together with the Banco Sabadell Foundation, which will take place from April to July.

This is the ‘Programa Experto’, which aims to contribute to training and talent through an introduction and sharing of professional experiences and success stories in prestigious institutions and companies both in the public and the private sector. The programme also aims to become a reference for young professionals who are just beginning their journey through the world of work.

The conferences will take place in the Factoría Cultural headquarters (Matadero Madrid. Paseo de la Chopera 14. Post code: 28045) every Thursday from 19:30. Register beforehand on the website to attend free of charge. Each conference is around 40 minutes long, followed by a discussion with the attendees. Conferences are also broadcast through live streaming, after which each broadcast can be accessed through the website for one week.
