Jordi Cervós i Navarro had been in Germany for more than forty years as a researcher, professor and vice-rector of the Freie Universität Berlin when the Board proposed he take up the role of rector of a new university to be founded in Barcelona. He accepted the mandate, and with commitment, enthusiasm and without looking back, he forged ahead because he believed in the project.

Sr. Miguel Ángel Cazcarra
President del Patronat de UIC Barcelona

UIC Barcelona is a reality, and a commitment to the future. We want to celebrate that we are now a quarter of a century old, and that no one can stop us in our desire to improve; we are dedicated to constantly working in favour of quality teaching, of excellence in research and in knowledge transfer in order to impact on society.

Dr. Alfonso Méndiz
Rector de UIC Barcelona

We have a wonderful year ahead of us to celebrate. 2 October 2022 is only the beginning of a great celebration, which will continue until June 2023 with the closing of the academic year. It will be a year full of extraordinary activities open to both the university community and their families, and to society in general. It will be a good opportunity to show the world who we are, what we do, how we do it, and where we are going.

Our history: 1997-2022

UIC Barcelona,
25 years (1997-2022)

Between the end of the 60s and the beginning of the 70s, a group of parents and teachers, enthusiastic and motivated by learning and higher education, wanted to create a university project with its own identity, when the legal framework did not yet allow the creation of private universities. + info
