Breakfast Lectures is a social and cultural initiative, through which the ULPGC seeks to welcome renowned experts from the national and international university sphere, in order to address the role and aims of Spanish higher education institutions and to strengthen their position and presence within society.
Each year the Social Council therefore invites representatives of the university community, researchers, sponsors, and businesses which support the university, in addition to representatives of the Canary Island’s social and cultural spheres, to meet and strengthen the dialogue and relationships between the university and society.
