The Universidad de Granada is safeguarding its future by developing high-quality research. Promoting traditional lines of research, providing significant support in other areas which, although less developed, may be of interest to a changing society and maintaining links with the companies and institutions around us are the criteria that underpin the research we carry out. These ideas have proved to be successful, allowing us to increase the funds earmarked for research and open up solid prospects for the future that did not previously exist. The growth in the scientific sector ensures that the university maintains its position amongst the leading Spanish universities. The flourishing relationships with public and private companies throughout the country, through research contracts and the provision of services, are guarantees for the future.
