This has been possible thanks to the quality and competitiveness of our faculty and researchers, the commitment and dedication of our staff, and the hard work and talent of our students.
We have also created a model of an urban university that is intimately linked to the city of Barcelona.
Moreover, we have to work in a relatively rigid, overly regulated environment, with a uniform size-based funding system that does not sufficiently take into account decisive aspects such as performance, competitiveness or universities’ contributions to society.
In this context, UPF has achieved good results over the past few years, including strong teaching quality indicators and research results that have increased exponentially in recent times.
However, sometimes one needs to shake up the foundations in order to build a more solid structure.

Finally, mention must be made of UPF’s teaching model, which is increasingly oriented towards the customisation and personalisation of studies.In a context in which universities must be flexible, dynamic and highly adaptable, creating these units will allow us to streamline and simplify decision-making.Third, we have evaluated the research carried out by our departments using a pioneering method in Spain designed with the support of the Catalan University Quality Assurance Agency (AQU Catalunya).To summarize and report results from separate worksheets, you can consolidate data from each sheet into a master worksheet.The sheets can be in the same workbook as the master worksheet, or in other workbooks.
