Pompeu Fabra University (Catalan: Universitat Pompeu Fabra, pronounced: [uniβərsiˈtat pumˈpɛw ˈfaβɾə]; UPF) is a public university in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Founded in 1990, it is named after the Catalan philologist Pompeu Fabra. According to Times Higher Education it is one of the 7 fastest-rising young universities in the world.
UPF offers its studies around three areas of knowledge: the social sciences and humanities, the health and life sciences, and the ITC and communication sciences.
Teaching is organized in seven colleges: Humanities, Health and Life Sciences, Economics, Political and Social Sciences, Communication, Law, Translation and Interpretation as well as one polytechnic school focused on engineering and ICT.
Research is organized in eight departments: Economics and Business, Law, Political and Social Sciences, Humanities, Experimental Sciences and Health, ICT, Communication and Translation & Language Sciences.
The University also has four affiliated centers (International Trade Business School -ESCI-, Elisava School of Design, Tecnocampus and Mar University School of Nursing -ESIM) and three interuniversity postgraduate platforms (Barcelona School of Management -BSM-, Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals -IBEI- and Barcelona Graduate School of Economics -Barcelona GSE-).
In order to promote research and transfer activities undertaken by university researchers and provide them with greater international visibility, the University is developing the UPF Research Park in the fields of social sciences, humanities, communication and information technologies. The UPF Research Park, which develops its activity at Ciutadella and Poblenou campuses, coordinates its activities in the fields of health and life sciences with the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB), located at Mar campus.
UPF has also been participating in a set of institutions and centers specializing in teaching, research and transfer that have their own legal personality and which comprise the UPF Group, and which often exist in collaboration with other institutions and universities. Thus, in the field of research and transfer, plus the three science parks include the Municipal Institute of Medical Research (IMIM) - Hospital del Mar, Institute of Evolutionary Biology (IBE) (CSIC-UPF), the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) or the Research Centre for International Economics (CREI).
The UPF is located in three separate campuses, each associated to its own area of knowledge:
- Social Sciences and Humanities (Ciutadella Campus)
- ITC and communication sciences (Poblenou Campus)
- Health and Life Sciences (Mar Campus)
The position of the UPF is presented in the following international rankings: Times Higher Education (THE), Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), the one published by Shanghai University (ARWU) and the Leiden ranking, which is focused on research.
