    2. 2. The past and present… The UCO is heir to a centuries-old historical and cultural legacy and a passion for knowledge, tolerance, and harmony among civilizations. This reflects in the three areas of UCO activities: Food and Agriculture, Science and Technology Humanities and Legal and Social Sciences Health Sciences This balance is also manifested in the quality of its teaching and research, ranking it among the top academic institutions in Spain. The UCO is one of the foremost research institutions in Spain, further consolidated with: ceiA3 (Agrifood Campus of International Excellence)  Rabanales 21 Science and Technology Park IMIBIC Maimonides Institute for Biomedical Research. Our university is an international leader in the agrifood field, one of the institution’s main strengths, and also enjoys an enviable reputation in the humanities, in a city that is known worldwide for its artistic and monumental heritage. A young, dynamic university, dedicated to research and in constant evolution, the UCO is firmly committed to the problems and needs of the community at large. As a public institution, it has close links with the society it serves, but is also dedicated to aiding other peoples and countries. The UCO also maintains strong ties with the business sector, while structuring much of its own activity around an entrepreneurial vision. Most importantly, it is an institution committed not only to training qualified professionals, but to supporting and encouraging its students to grow as people and as citizens.

    17. 17. Research The Agrifood Campus of International Excellence (ceiA3) is a joint initiative between the Universities of Almería (UAL), Cádiz (UCA), Huelva (UHU), Jaén (UJA) and Córdoba (UCO). Headed by the UCO, the objectives of the ceiA3 are ambitious and involve a firm social commitment, given that the agrifood sector of Andalusia provides a promising future for our students as well as other young people in our community. The project seeks to modernise and internationalise our universities so that they become a driver of towards a sustainable productive model based on knowledge and innovation. The ceiA3 promotes this change by bringing together knowledge- generating institutions in the same geographical area including, among them universities, research centres, and technology parks. It aims to encourage the transfer of this knowledge to society and strengthen the university’s role as an innovative institution that generates new knowledge for the benefit of society at large.
