Adela Farré (Terrassa, 1961). I started my professional career working as a journalist in several media (Diari de Barcelona, El Correo Catalán, El Noticiero Universal, Catalan delegation of Madrid’s newspaper ABC, etc.). I held the positions of media manager firstly and then Director’s chief of staff in the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (1989-1994).
Between 1995 and 2006, I was Head of Intermón Oxfam’s Press Office, one of the largest Spanish NGOs. The exercise of “solidarity journalism” has given me the opportunity to see firsthand the harsh realities of countries such as Morocco, Tanzania, Mozambique, Brazil, Peru, and Ecuador, among others.
After a year working as a communications director for a private company and as a communications consultant for different non-profit organizations, I rejoined Intermón Oxfam as Head of Identity and Image Area of the organization (2007-2009).
From 2009 to 2015, I have been the Director of Communications and Institutional Relations of Biocat, an organization created to promote life sciences in Catalonia, and I have been managing editor and main writer of its biennial report, a reference in Catalan and Spanish biotech sector (see Publicacion(e)s section).
From February 2015 to April 2016 I have been the Director of Communications, Marketing & Promotion of the Barcelona Science Park (PCB).
