  • 10th UB-Torres Environmental Session will address challenges of energy transition to halt climate emergency
    “Wind farms, nuclear power plants, blockchain technology… Energy and environment under debate” is the title of the 10th Environmental Session to be held at the Aula Magna of the Historical Building of the UB, on Monday, May 30, at 10:00 a.m. This session, organized together with Família Torres and the meteorologist and lecturer of Physics at the UB Tomàs Molina, will gather a dozen experts to analyse the top energy model to ensure an energy transition that responds to the climate emergency.
  • LERU turns twenty and defends the role of research-intensive universities in a post-pandemic scenario
    Last week, the League of European Research Universities (LERU) held a ceremony to commemorate its twenty years of existence. The chosen city to do so was Leiden, in the Netherlands, the place where the network was born in 2002. The University of Barcelona has been a member of LERU since 2010.    The field of higher education has many challenges, some of which were tackled during the two days of the twentieth anniversary conference. The opening counted on the presence of Maria Leptin, president of the European Research Council; Christian Ehler, member of the European Parliament, and Pavel Dole¿ek, former deputy minister for Higher Education, Science and Research of the Czech Republic, among other speakers. Mariya Gabriel, commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture and Education at the European Commission, took part in the meeting as well.
  • The language plan and the first UB reception plan for Catalan language and culture, approved
    The University of Barcelona is the main public university in Catalonia, one of the most prestigious higher education institutions in Spain and, according to the most influential university rankings, it is listed among the top 150 universities worldwide. Of its 70,000 students, 15% are international students. Therefore, it is logical to understand that the UB feels strongly committed to the use, development, study and promotion of the Catalan language as its academic language, while at the same time, it aims to promote multilingualism among the members of its community.     With this dual aim, the Governing Council of the UB approved two plans last week: on the one hand, the UB Plan for Languages 2022-2025 (the fourth of these plans launched to date); and on the other, the UB Reception plan for Catalan language and culture, the first one designed at the UB to fit the institution’s internationalization with the promotion of its own and official language. “These two projects are absolutely intertwined and necessary”, says the vice-rector for Institutional Relations, Communication and Language Policy, Jordi Matas, “because, as stated in our Statute, the University of Barcelona has to promote the Catalan language and has to contribute to the incorporation of the UB’s own language into all fields of knowledge”. Matas points out that “it has to be compatible with the will to promote the internationalization of our institution” and that it is possible “by doing our work well and moving in that direction”.
