The Food and Nutrition Torribera Campus is the fruit of an agreement between the Barcelona Provincial Council, the Town Council of Santa Coloma de Gramenet and the University of Barcelona to establish a centre of university teaching on the Torribera site in the district of Santa Coloma, at the foot of the Serralada de Marina mountains. The campus focuses primarily on the teaching of food sciences and related disciplines through a range of bachelor's and master's degrees, as well as overseeing extensive research activities, coordinated by the Nutrition and Food Safety Research Institute (INSA·UB), and the transfer and diffusion of knowledge and research results to the productive sector and to society in general.
The University of Barcelona intends this site to be an open space for collaborative work with other stakeholders involved in the diverse areas of food and nutrition, in particular the University School of Hotel Management and Tourism (CETT), and for the creation of strategic alliances to merge the capabilities of Catalan stakeholders in the sector. The Food and Nutrition Torribera Campus is also integrated into the frameworks of the two Campuses of International Excellence in which the UB participates: the HUBc health sciences campus, through its work in the area of food and health, and the BKC knowledge campus, through the teaching activities of the Faculty of Pharmacy.
