We wish to thank our host institution the University of Deusto in Bilbao for its generous support of the 2018 Autumn Academy.

Founded in 1886 by the Society of Jesus, the University of Deusto is the oldest private university in Spain. The university has six faculties distributed in two city campuses, Bilbao and San Sebastian, and covers eight main fields of study: business, law, psychology, education, social sciences, humanities, engineering and theology. With around 12,000 students, and recognised for its international outlook, it offers more than 27 bachelor degrees, 60 masters and 8 doctoral programmes, and ranks among Spain’s leading universities. Deusto’s hallmark is a student-oriented education based on the development of competences and values, through innovative learning methods.
