Led by its rector, François Germinet, the CY Cergy Paris Université visited the University Pompeu Fabra – Barcelona in the beginning of May 2019 with the aim of creating synergies in the field of higher education and building strong international partnerships.
The meeting, part of the Eutopia project, was held so that the representatives of the two institutions could explore ways of working together. For this purpose, bilateral meetings were organized with the different fields of knowledge at UPF: political and social sciences, health and life sciences, communication, economics and business, engineering and information and communication technologies, humanities, and translation and language sciences.
Visits to several unique spaces of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra – Barcelona were also scheduled, such as the Workshops Area of the Poblenou campus, which is undergoing transformation, and the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB).
Finally, the visit also served to introduce to the delegation of CY Cergy Paris Université two strategic projects that UPF is currently developing. Josep Lluís Martí, vice-rector for innovation projects, explained EDvolució, the project to completely renovate and update UPF’s model of education; Pablo Pareja, commissioner for UPF student academic career, presented UPForward, the project that seeks to give order and coherence to every student’s passage through the University, from before their arrival until after graduation, when they become alumni.
