    Strategic Plan 2023-2027


     Intending to help to foster the potential of its students and contribute to the transformation of society and its development, the Universitat Politècnica de València focuses its public higher education service on providing the best learning experience to its students, accrediting the competencies and skills acquired for the exercise of professional activities related to art, science and technology, and facilitating lifelong learning with accredited quality training offers.

    With the same intensity, the UPV promotes the creation, development and criticism of scientific and technical knowledge and culture through research; it boosts the exchange and transfer of knowledge and research results to contribute to social and economic development and environmental sustainability.


    In 2027 the UPV will be a university that, on its three campuses, in a sustainable way and within its alliances:

    • It personalises learning for each student, developing their artistic, scientific, digital, and technical skills, their ability to innovate and work collaboratively, and their social commitment.
    • It has a certified quality academic offer, internationally attractive, motivating, and relevant for the different interest groups, through which each student learns to undertake and lead with ethical responsibility.
    • It promotes transdisciplinary collaboration, cultivating a diverse, creative, engaged university community.
    • It generates the scientific, technological, and artistic avant-garde, leading innovation in society through the transfer of knowledge and collaboration with companies and public and private institutions.
    • It is committed to serving society and being society aware of this.



    At the UPV, teaching, research, transfer and management activities are carried out following human and social values such as freedom, equality, justice, solidarity and pluralism. Specifically, it is an institution that seeks the common interest:

    • It ensures respect and inclusion.
    • It fosters collaboration and internationalisation.
    • Manages resources in a responsible, sustainable, and transparent manner.
    • It promotes innovation and the incorporation of disruptive improvements.
