Dr. Anna Prades, project manager with AQU Catalunya, participated in the graduation ceremony at the University of Barcelona/UB's Faculty of Chemistry, which took place at the university's Paranimf hall. The ceremony also saw the presentation of plaques in recognition of the work of members of the faculty's retired senior academic staff, including the former director of AQU Catalunya, Dr. Gemma Rauret.

The presentation by Dr. Prades, titled "Findings of the AQU Catalunya survey on the graduate employment outcomes of Master's degree programmes in the Sciences", analysed the employment outcomes of students in the Sciences, whose participation in PhD programmes is much higher than graduates in other fields. This results in a lower age that students complete Master's and doctoral programmes, a higher full-time study rate, and a longer period of time that graduates take to enter employment (due to lack of professional experience).
