The projects for which grants were requested are one of the tools in place to support the involvement of members of the university community in initiatives that help uphold the university’s social commitment, one of UIC Barcelona’s defining missions. This call is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the UN General Assembly (2030 Agenda).
