The rector of the UB, Joan Elias, visited today the headquarters of the Confucius Institute of Barcelona, which has the collaboration of the UB, UAB and the public entity Casa Àsia. The Institute, which is currently directed by Javier Orduña, professor of German Studies at the UB, has been honored this year with the 3rd Award Chinese Chair of Madrid and outstands for the relations it set with all public Catalan and Andorran universities, in the Macro-Confucius.

Confucius institutes aim to promote Chinese language, its academic exchange and to disseminate the culture of the Asian country. Apart from the regulated language course offerings, training activities also cover teacher training and the organization of international competitions and language camps in China. The academic exchange is specially based on study grants assigned to different fields: translation and interpreting, arts and music, history and anthropology, as well as economics, medicine and urbanism. Civic outreach ranges from participation in popular Chinese culture contests (Lunar New Year; Dragon Boat Festival, etc.) to cycles of gastronomy, music and cinema.
