  • model organitzatiu

    Organizational model

    Torribera's campus was born in the early 2000's decade as a brand new concept, taking profit of the historical UB's experience at both organizational and sectorial levels. That's why, once the agreement with Diputació de Barcelona was signed in 2007, UB found itself in real need to move towards the new organizational model of the recently instituted Food and Nutrition Torribera Campus, which represents the sixth university campus of the UB.

  • campus universitari de Santa Coloma

    University campus of Santa Coloma

    In 2003 the city of Santa Coloma de Gramenet signed, in conjunction with Diputació de Barcelona and University of Barcelona, the location of university studies around a UB campus with the firm conviction that, through university-city interaction revolving around the knowledge in the food sector, both UB and Santa Coloma would gain clear benefits. Besides, the integration of University of Barcelona made possible thinking about a future arrival of other projects in Santa Coloma's university campus.
