Prometeus Project

This project aims to increase the number of young people from the Raval, Besòs-Maresme, La Verneda i la Pau and the Zona Nord who complete university studies.

The UB, UAB, UPF and UPC universities participate in the Prometeus driving group. At the UB, the Solidarity Foundation, together with the Social Policy and University Access (PSAU) programme of the Faculty of Education, manages the coordination of the project entities with the Tutorial Action Plan of each faculty, the Student Care and the Academic Management Service.
