UNIVERSITAT JAUME I DE CASTELLON
Universitat Jaume I (UJI) is the Spanish public university in the north of the Valencian Community. Established in 1991, the UJI has positioned itself as a friendly university characterised by its personal attention, smooth-running management procedures and the high levels of participation of its members in university life, due, among other things, to its convenient size, with about 14,000 students, and its integrated, modern, functional and sustainable campus.

Its research output is considerable and proved by its numerous research, development and innovation contracts.
