Personally, and on behalf of Pompeu Fabra University, I would like to give you a very warm welcome.
Founded in 1990, UPF is a young public university, a leader in research committed to educational transformation that has already achieved international recognition, as witnessed, for example, by its inclusion in the top rankings.
UPF’s main goal and reason for being is the creation of knowledge and its transmission (through education) and transfer to society. Our activity must improve the well-being of people, both locally and globally, and of the planet, reducing inequality (socioeconomic, gender, etc.) in keeping with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the UN’s 2030 Agenda.
From the start, UPF has been an urban university, closely connected to the city of Barcelona, its activity aligned with the interests of society, its institutions, and its inhabitants. It conducts this activity in eight disciplines, spread out across three campuses located in the city centre. In recent years, it has also been part of the UPF Group, a network of legally separate institutions and centres specialized in teaching, research, and knowledge transfer, each of which brings added value to our university project.
I encourage you to use this website to learn more about our university and invite you to visit our campuses and interact with our community. The more people who participate, the more easily we can build a university that is constantly improving to the betterment of society.
