What we do

Development Cooperation Projects

The real protagonists of the projects of development cooperation are the members of the university. Teams of staff, teachers and students carry out projects in collaboration with NGOs, universities and research centers of partner countries.

The CCD offers support to these teams and projects, offering advice, help in the search for funding, promoting links between groups and individuals and facilitating economic support through the Annual Call for Cooperation Projects of the CCD.

The orientation of these projects is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals and with the global fight against poverty, inequalities and exclusion, specially in the areas where the UPC, as a public technological university, can contribute, bringing technology at the service of sustainable human development.
