• Research in Food and Nutrition Torribera Campus

    Research activities held in the laboratories of the Gaudí building (with a surface of 2.178 m²) are the consequence of the transfer of different research teams to the campus. This allows Torribera to host the main functions of teaching and research activity. The coordination of the research in the campus is developed by the Nutrition and Food Safety Research Institute (INSA), which sets its Direction and Secretary's offices in the research building of the Food and Nutrition Torribera Campus, up till now located in spaces of the Barcelona Science Park.
