    The ”la Caixa” Fellows’ Association is a network of academic and professional talent made up of more than 4,000 people who have been trained in all kinds of disciplines and who live all over the world.

    Ever since the first ”la Caixa” fellowship programme began in 1982, the group of ”la Caixa” fellows has gradually become a first-rate, academic and professional reference, both in Spain and abroad.

    The ”la Caixa” Fellows’ Association, an initiative of Obra Social ”la Caixa”, fosters the creation of a social and professional network, encouraging countless activities that strengthen networking among the people who have been granted a ”la Caixa” fellowship.

    Among these activities is the Horizons: Talks & Lectures conference series, which makes use of the fellows’ contacts to invite well-known figures from all fields.
