Foundation: 1842

Mission: Our mission is to support and professionalize teachers and communication practitioners in a science and technology context. This enables them to design, support and manage complex educational and communicational processes and products.

Vision: We seek to develop competencies and expertise by continuously linking theory and practice in both our research and education. Our combined masters program provides BSc and MSc students with theoretical and methodological knowledge of both fields, which they learn to apply to real-world education and communication problems. Our conviction is that the interrelated domains of science education and communication can mutually benefit from close interaction and a continuous exchange of insights.

Evolution of the institution

The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.

Ranks by Subject area

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world.
