Report on the academic year 2018-2019 - University of Barcelona - Universitat de ...
It is my pleasure to present this latest edition of the Report on the academic
year, a window on the many projects, initiatives and activities carried out at the
University of Barcelona over the course of 2018-2019.

The Report describes our most noteworthy achievements in the fields of teach-
ing, research and knowledge transfer, both in our immediate sphere of influence
and as part of our international endeavours.

As a public institution, we are conscious of the need to go beyond the demands
that are placed on us and of the responsibility that comes with the scale of our
social impact. As such, the Report reflects the University’s commitment to wider
society, to which we are ultimately accountable. It is through this commitment
and, most importantly, through our core values that we address the challenges
in our path, transmitting knowledge and striving for excellence through con-
tinuous improvement.

I invite you, then, to read and explore this Report, which will take you through
the key developments of the academic year, achieved through the hard work
and rigour for which we have become known.
