Links to the UAB

The UAB is a referent institution for the city of Rubí, both for its geographic proximity and for the relation it has with the students of the city.

The close relation between UAB and Rubí can be seen in several joint projects carried out and in the active participation of the university in a number of activities organised by the local administration, from strategic planning of the city to programmes and projects designed under the knowledge framework: training, entrepreneurship, innovation and research. That is why UAB is a referent and a valuable institution for the city of Rubí.
What is more, under the context of the Consortium for the Promotion and Development of the B-30, formed by the city councils of Sant Cugat, Cerdanyola and Rubí with the aim of promoting one sole region of excellence under the brand Catalonia Innovation Triangle, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona is an integral part of the knowledge node created by the economic triangle focused on innovation: businesses - knowledge - innovation.

As a further example of its commitment to higher education, Rubí Town Council signed  a framework agreement with the UAB in November 2009 to join the Campus of International Excellence as an associate member.
