Last 2010 October 21st, Pompeu Fabra University was awarded the distinction of International Campus of Excellence by the Spanish Ministry of Education.

The winning project will be developed between 2011 and 2016, and includes actions involving teaching, research, transfer and internationalization activities in the three UPF areas of knowledge: social sciences and humanities, health and life sciences, and information technologies and communication. The project also includes actions to promote the interconnection of the UPF campus with its social, economic and cultural environment.

As far as infrastructures are concerned, the development of the UPF Research Park in Social Sciences and Humanities should be mentioned. Once completed, this Park, together with the already established Biomedical Research Park of Barcelona and Barcelona Media Park, will allow the structure of the three thematically-centred UPF research parks to bo completed.

The next pages offer an overview of the project.
