Environment


The URV is in one of the most dynamic social and economic areas in Europe and it is destined to become one of the driving forces behind the development and progress of Catalonia at the beginning of the 21st century. The powerful petrochemical industry, one of the most important tourist sectors on the continent, and an increasing concentration of services and sectors such as automotion, agrifood, etc. mean that the levels of unemployment are extremely low.

What is more, the southern regions of Catalonia enjoy a high quality of life: medium-sized cities full of personality, a mild Mediterranean climate, sea, beaches, mountains and exceptional national landscapes such as the Ebro Delta, privileged cultural areas such as Roman Tarraco (a World Heritage site) or the Modernist legacy in Reus, a wide range of leisure activities and an important communications network (port, airport, motorway and High-Speed Train).
