Within the framework of the series of visits to the main institutions of the country, on Monday May 22, the rector met the president of the Catalan Parliament, Carme Forcadell. During the meeting, Joan Elias expressed his worry for the underfunding the Catalan universities are receiving, which is shown when comparing Catalan centers to the European ones. The rector defended once more that the university is “issue of the country” and said that with a financial system such as the current one, the University of Barcelona –highly productive if taking into account its available resources- is at risk of losing its leading positions in research and social models.

Like in previous meetings with the main institutions of the country, the rector put emphasis on the “singularity” of the UB, a university that, apart from teaching, is intensive in research, contributes to knowledge dissemination decisively, and has a unique heritage such as the Historical Building, its archive or its documentary collections, and once more, he demanded support to strengthen this role of knowledge generator and disseminator.
