Higher Education and Research

Barcelona has a long and well-established university tradition that goes back more than 500 years and currently offers services of the highest level, with 6 public universities and 2 private universities, international-standard business schools and a growing number of technology and knowledge transfer centres.

Barcelona also has a large network of science and technology parks, most of which are associated with universities and have become important tools for extending business-university relations and promoting research and development activities.
