Host institution

We wish to thank our host institution The University of Alicante in Spain for its generous support of the 2020 Autumn Academy.

The University of Alicante (UA) is a public university located on the Mediterranean coast. Due to the historical influences, excellent location and magnificent connections, the UA is a welcoming university with one of the best campuses in Spain, not only in terms of infrastructure, but also in terms of sustainability and gender equality.  

Although the UA is a relatively young institution, it has a strong scientific and academic reputation which has allowed the UA to adapt to social changes and to the needs of the environment to lead a change of an economic model based on research, innovation, entrepreneurship and actual transfer of knowledge.
