At this meeting, which is held once a month, President Planell highlighted the success of the UOC’s educational model, how being a privately managed public university allows us to continue growing and hiring new talent, and how COVID-19 has forced us to reconsider many things, including a new way of working.

An explanation of the UOC’s mission, business model (prism model and quadruple helix) and its main internal collectives (faculties, research centres and administrative staff) was provided by Antoni Cahner, the General Manager.
