Foundation: 1990

Mission: To train, through a rigorous, innovative and personalized educational model, people with solid scientific and cultural knowledge, appropriate transversal skills to adapt to the changes and challenges of society and with the ability to develop their life projects. Become a preeminent research university. We have to be pioneers in scientific discoveries and innovations, and we have to achieve international leadership in our own fields. Promoting innovation and social transformation We have to go beyond the walls of the institution, in order to create synergies with society and thus contribute to its well-being and to the creation of value. Boosting commitment to culture We have to be a 'factory of ideas', that is, a place of debate, discussion and reflection at the service of culture that offers tools to decipher the contemporary world and to participate actively in it.

Vision: A state-of-the-art research university, with a public service purpose, to position itself as one of the most internationally recognised European higher education institutions, attractive to students and to the most talented and committed teachers. A personalized, efficient and adaptable university, that works with efficiency, clarity, rigour and immediacy and that adapts to the context and needs of the community, in order to effectively achieve the results it seeks, but without ever losing sight of its commitment to society. A public university, economically sustainable, to be financed with an adequate contribution of public resources and also with other sources of resources generated by the University's own activity. An urban university, focused on challenges that Barcelona and its urban environment are facing, that takes advantage of the modernity and creativity of a city open to the world as a source of inspiration to influence the transformation of the University.
