The University of Cantabria is a young modern public institution whose main purpose is to contribute to social progress through a firm commitment to teaching and scientific excellence. In order to achieve its goals, it strives to constantly improve the quality of its work through a process that revises and improves its teaching, research and administrative activities. The application of this process has made the UC outstanding among Spanish universities due to its quality and scientific productivity.


Several comparative studies analysing general and specific aspects of research in Spain rank the University of Cantabria among the most outstanding Spanish R&D&I institutions both for its productivity and its scientific quality.
The R&D groups maintain close and permanent links with companies, public administrations and institutions to collaborate in the development of varied projects and studies that require a high level of specialisation and competence.
Between 2003 and 2007 university departments executed 1,826 projects with financing that amounts to 98,4 million euros. Of these projects 1,403 were contracted projects. The collaboration with the industrial sector in R&D activities has crystallised in the Technological Development Centre of the University of Cantabria (CDTUC), a centre devoted to innovation where 14 firms and 12 research groups are currently working.
