The Escola has its headquarters in Barcelona. Here most of the work on international projects is done – however some projects have taken us as far as Istanbul. As part of the communication and promotion activities the Escola staff frequently travel to other destination to share the know-how and expertise. Moreover, because of the high-quality event organisational skills, we have also hosted private and public conferences for experts coming from as far as the United States.
The courses that we organise as part of the training services also are rarely restricted to our classrooms in Barcelona. LIFE MOS courses are carried out on vessels that serve on the Grimaldi Shipping Line between Barcelona and Civitavecchia or Grandi Navi Veloci line between Barcelona and Genoa. LIFE RAIL courses are carried out in custom-built wagon-classrooms tailored specifically for the needs of the Escola. The train, ‘el Expreso de la Robla’, has two separate parts; one for teaching and one for the accommodation of the students.
