At this meeting, which is held once a month, President Planell highlighted the success of the UOC’s educational model, how being a privately managed public university allows us to continue growing and hiring new talent, and how COVID-19 has forced us to reconsider many things, including a new way of working.

General Manager Antoni Cahner discussed the UOC’s structure and mission. Marta Aymerich, Vice President for Strategic Planning and Research, will also be participating in the institutional welcome sessions from now on, and she explained the main challenges relating to the Strategic Plan the UOC’s research ecosystem.
