Greetings from the president

With Campus Iberus, the universities of Zaragoza, Lleida, Navarra and La Rioja intend to anticipate a changing world in which we want to continue playing a relevant role in the training of professionals and in the generation of knowledge that contributes to social development.

This alliance, deserving the recognition of the Campus of International Excellence, seeks to align efforts and resources to stand out in highly specialized fields – clearly identified with the signs of the Ebro Valley territory – and also to achieve a significant international positioning.

Innovation plays a fundamental role in contributing to smart, sustainable and inclusive growth in which regions are the most appropriate areas to link the University, business projects, public administrations and society.

Campus Iberus – whose project clearly responds to that spirit – is closely linked to the geographical space where its four universities are located and aims to serve the citizens of the Ebro Valley, a space unit with common interests and complementary socioeconomic trajectories.

Born in 2010, Campus Iberus brings together four public universities from four autonomous communities and attains – jointly – an enrollment of 60,000 students and offers a wide academic offer of degrees, masters and PhD programs.

Responding to its international vocation, Campus Iberus has expanded the boundaries of its project with alliances with the French universities of Pau and other cross-border universities; It also has an office in Brussels to support researchers and a delegation in Colombia.

In the field of research we have created the Iberus Interuniversity Consortiums in the fields of agri-food-nutrition, energy-environment, health technologies and social and territorial development.

Campus Iberus is, therefore, a firm reality, a reality full of opportunities. We university students are aware that the most academically and scientifically solvent institutions, the most socially recognized and those with the capacity to obtain more resources are precisely those that accredit an important capacity to forge alliances such as this one that commits us in Campus Iberus.
