The second meeting of the UB Northern Mediterranean Transactional Campus is taking place today. This is an academic and scientific cooperation project in which the University of Barcelona, Aix-Marseille University, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and Sapienza University of Rome take part. Rector Joan Elias and head members of the other universities are taking part in this meeting, in which the priority collaboration areas will be named.

The Northern Mediterranean Transactional Campus has four main aims: strengthening bonds among the participating universities regarding mobility, training, research and innovation; jointly developing large projects in the European and international framework; defining the priority themes and fields of excellence in common, and strengthening the academic and scientific potential of these four universities as well as their ability of action and their positions in rankings.
