Universitat Rovira i Virgili

Scientific policy at the URV

The Universitat Rovira i Virgili devotes significant efforts and funds to achieving excellent education at doctoral level and in research, which it sees as a key factor for a society based on knowledge and innovation. This level also has an essential role in working towards the vision of a high-quality university in education and research that is international in scope and has a decisive impact on local progress.

Doctoral education is gaining strategic importance internationally. In the last 10 years, reforms have been made in order to improve the quality of learning, recruitment and retention of talent and to increase the socio-economic impact of doctoral education.

Following international trends of thought and action, new regulations have been approved to boost the development of doctoral studies in Spain and at the URV.
