Introduction

Since it was founded in 1450, the University of Barcelona has become a benchmark institution for teaching, scientific research and knowledge creation in Spain and abroad. Its dynamic, critical and constructive qualities have always been placed at the service of the community and the country, where it strives to uphold the principles of freedom and equality and pursue its commitment to progress. In its eighteen centres, located within the inner city, the UB offers a wide range of subjects to more than sixty-four thousand undergraduate and postgraduate students of 120 different nationalities studying on its six campuses. In research, the UB works in innovative disciplines such as biomedicine and biotechnology but is also active in more traditional fields including experimental sciences, social sciences, health, the humanities and fine arts, and its researchers publish in the most prestigious international journals. The University of Barcelona is also actively involved in the work of the League of European Research Universities (LERU) and has fully consolidated the actions of its two campuses of international excellence, the HUBc health sciences campus and the BKC knowledge campus, the latter in conjunction with the Polytechnic University of Catalonia. Alongside teaching and research, areas such as internationalization, innovation, social and environmental responsibility, good governance and gender equality complete the portfolio of activities and initiatives carried out by the UB.
