University Networks

In order to develop international politics, UPC-BarcelonaTech is a member of a series of university networks of excellence that respond to different objectives and that focus their efforts on the joint work of prestigious institutions in order to obtain results that position us, that visualize us and to lead the interests and strategies of the institution at the highest level.

UPC is part of several international networks, but as a FIB student, you might be interested in the following:
