Campus of International Excellence

Campus Iberus is the strategic alliance set up in 2010 between the following four Spanish public universities: University of Zaragoza, Public University of Navarra, University of Lleida and University of La Rioja.

The Campus Iberus strategy is built on the principles of aggregation, specialization and internationalization, focusing especially on the areas of Agro-food and Nutrition; Energy, the Environment and Sustainability; Health Technologies; Social and Territorial Development; and the Circular Economy and Bioeconomy.

Campus Iberus carries out actions and projects in the areas of higher education and training, students, R&I and internationalization.

In the area of education, it promotes the introduction of internationally-oriented joint master and doctoral programmes, which create added value in their regions. It also develops joint actions aimed at doctoral students of the four universities of the Consortium.

Campus Iberus is committed to innovation models that foster creativity and the development of talent in its universities. The Iberus – CLH Entrepreneurship Programme contributes to the establishment and growth of new innovative businesses in the Ebro Valley.

In the area of R&I, we encourage the aggregation of research capabilities through actions such as the Iberus Action Groups which involve researchers of its four universities, as well as businesses and local organizations with the aim of jointly implementing strategical research projects.

Campus Iberus has an international vision and promotes the coordinated action of its universities to carry out research, education and cooperation projects in Europe, Latin America and Asia. To this end, Campus Iberus has set up two international offices, one in Brussels and another one in Bogotá, Colombia.

In the next few years, Campus Iberus’ mission will be to continue developing excellence in its universities in cooperation with public and private regional entities, through the design and implementation of activities and programmes that enable the sharing of resources, the aggregation of capabilities and the facing of new challenges in education, research and innovation in an international context.
