Nebrija ResearchResearch Chairs


The Nebrija Research Chairs are a paradigm of cooperation between the University and other organizations, which promote access to and the generation of knowledge, and its transfer to the productive sector and to society in general.

The academic programs, research groups, research projects, scientific production, and doctoral theses of each research area make up an ecosystem in which the chair encourages intense activity of knowledge generation and transfer.

Specifically, the Nebrija-Santander Chairs represent an alliance between Nebrija University and Banco Santander, which allows for further research and the University's social involvement. The chairs are dedicated to strategic areas aimed at solving the current challenges of our society, in which Nebrija has a proven research and teaching tradition.
