50th anniversary: congratulations UAB!
Just 50 years ago, in the spring of 1968, students from the universities of Paris were cutting the streets of the French capital, making this social movement an historical reference. At the same time in Spain, on June 6 exactly, in a very different political context, the official state gazette (BOE) published the decree by which the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), current partner of the Barcelona Synchrotron Park, was created.

After all these years, UAB is about to leave the category of young universities according to the Times Higher Education (THE) criterion. In the last THE ranking, UAB occupies the 13th position among the world’s top 250 universities founded less than 50 years ago according to teaching quality, research, citations, internationalisation and knowledge transfer.

No matter if UAB is young or mature: according to the 2019 QS World University Rankings recently published, the university is among the 200 best universities worldwide.

Let’s take advantage of this anniversary to point out some figures from the UAB’s 2016-2017 report: 46,749 students, 3,757 professors and researchers, 87 bachelor degrees, 133 master degrees, a € 313 million budget, 264 research groups, 1,072 PhD produced, among the world’s top 100 universities in 12 areas (QS ranking).

UAB offers teaching and research quality and the commitment to the society and the territory with technology transfer, among others:  UAB is definitely a key Barcelona Synchrotron Park’s asset for attracting companies in the park.

Congratulations!
