The Agbar Foundation supports IBEI’s teaching and research activity
Eduard Pallejà, director of the Agbar Foundation, and Jacint Jordana, director of IBEI, have signed a collaboration agreement between both institutions through which the Agbar Foundation undertakes to support postgraduate teaching and research in the fields of environment and natural resource management.
Through this collaboration, the Agbar Foundation is committed to supporting the organization of teaching and academic activities of the official Master's degree in International Development taught at IBEI, and more specifically those subjects that focus on international environmental management. The Foundation will also support IBEI’s programme of international visiting professors, as well as its research seminars and the participation of IBEI researchers in external research activities.
This collaboration will create operational synergies between faculty who research and teach at IBEI and Agbar’s Water School and CREA (Center for Water Resources), This will allow participants in the programmes to have access to elements of international strategy on key current issues.
In addition to social welfare projects, the Agbar Foundation promotes and encourages, on a non-profit basis, actions fostering three aspects of sustainability and sustainable development – protection of the environment, social equity and economic growth – through research, innovation and the dissemination of knowledge. The Foundation endeavours to improve the quality of life of people by means of scientific, cultural, charitable and academic activities.
