UNIVERSITAT DE BARCELONA
The Universitat de Barcelona (UB) is the largest and oldest university in Catalonia. The UB is an important centre of university research in the South of Europe and it has become a European benchmark for research activity, both in terms of the number of research programmes it conducts and the excellence these have achieved. Since 2010 UB has been a member of LERU. The UB’s Learning and Research Resources Centre (CRAI) was created at the start of 2004 to adapt the university libraries to the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and the European Research Area (ERA), in which a new framework of university teaching is taking shape, based on learning, research, development and innovation.
UB leads the LEARN work package 4 ‘Assessment of Impact’ aimed at establishing a set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and metrics for the recommendations of the original LERU Roadmap and the new Toolkit. In this work package we will also create an online questionnaire to establish the impact that the LERU Roadmap and the Toolkit are having on research institutions.
Ignasi Labastida is the Head of the Research Unit at the CRAI of the UB, and is one of the authors of the LERU Roadmap. Ignasi has been with the CRAI since 2006 where he has worked in the area of open access, open data and open policies. He is also a member of the Steering Committe of the LERU Community of Chief Information Officers. Ignasi will disseminate the LEARN outcomes to his national colleagues and to the LERU CIO Community in order to adopt the LEARN Toolkit at institutional level.
