About

History

On 18 June 1990, Catalan Parliament gave the go-ahead for the creation of a new public university in Catalonia, Pompeu Fabra University, inspired by the principles of freedom, democracy, justice, equality, independence and plurality. From its beginnings, this young academic institution set itself this main objective: to train responsible professionals and citizens fully committed to civic values.

Education

The primary aims are to educate responsible professional people and citizens committed to the values of civic life, and to contribute to the development of research, the transfer of technology and the cultivation of innovation as the driving forces behind progress for society in the twenty-first century. Continuous innovation and improvement in teaching and in technology, the good academic performance of our students, the successful passage of our graduates into the professional world, the university´s high internationalisation index, and its high standing in the sphere of research.

Research

Teaching work at the UPF is currently focused on the social sciences and the humanities, health and life sciences, and communication in its twin aspects of content and technology. As regards research, aside from its consolidation in the social sciences and humanities, the UPF is leading two outstanding projects: the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park, and the Barcelona Media Park, the latter being a large-scale infrastructure for education, research and production work in the spheres of communication and technology, and both projects serving to complement and complete the University´s research map.
