Promotion of territorial development
One of the objectives in this area is the promotion of actions which benefit the socioeconomic environment, creating forums for collaboration with regional administrations and organisations. In order to further this goal, the university works closely with bodies involved in territorial development projects. The university, working in conjunction with the Tarragona Provincial Council, has created the Tarragona Knowledge Region Office project, which aims to promote innovation and competitiveness in companies within its geographic sphere of activity.
The university has also set up the Socioeconomic Committee of Camp de Tarragona, whose active members include employers, unions and chambers of commerce. This body developed the Camp de Tarragona Strategic Plan, which defines the central actions to be undertaken to improve development in the northernmost counties of southern Catalonia.
