20 Research The Agrifood Campus of International Excellence (ceiA3) is a joint initiative between the Universities of Almería (UAL), Cádiz (UCA), Huelva (UHU), Jaén (UJA) and Córdoba (UCO). Headed by the UCO, the objectives of the ceiA3 are ambitious and involve a firm social commitment, given that the agrifood sector of Andalusia provides a promising future for our students as well as other young people in our community. The project seeks to modernise and internationalise our universities so that they become a driver of towards a sustainable productive model based on knowledge and innovation. The ceiA3 promotes this change by bringing together knowledge- generating institutions in the same geographical area including, among them universities, research centres, and technology parks. It aims to encourage the transfer of this knowledge to society and strengthen the university’s role as an innovative institution that generates new knowledge for the benefit of society at large.
