Merging our capabilities to multiply excellence




The Universitat de Barcelona (UB) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) present their joint Campus of International Excellence project called Barcelona Knowledge Campus to establish a framework for strategic collaboration aimed at building a knowledge ecosystem to promote employability, social cohesion and territorial economic development.

The result of this partnership is a territorial campus defined but not restricted to, by three areas of specialization: life sciences, social sciences and technologies. BKC also covers other thematic areas following the same standards of excellence: architecture, engineering, sciences and Fine arts.

The Campus runs independently, so its activity needs a coordinated and lasting management structure. For this purpose, BKC designs a common governance structure through a single committee, a social, business, and scientific council and a coordination and management unit.
