Since its founding in 1997, one of the objectives of the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC Barcelona) has been research. Since then, UIC Barcelona has implemented a research and knowledge transfer plan that has helped it secure a position in this competitive field comparable to other like-sized universities with similar characteristics.
It is currently home to research groups in the following areas:
Medical and health sciences
These years have seen an increase in both the research quality indicators and the number of new doctors, scientific publications and research projects. A number of agreements have also been established with companies and institutions.
As a result, through our research, we have made a contribution to the development of science, technology and a higher standard of life.
To carry out this mission, UIC Barcelona receives support from the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), which provide funding for projects undertaken by university knowledge transfer and valorisation units.
