University of Eastern Finland

The Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV) was created in 1991 by the Parliament of Catalonia from the already existing university faculties and schools. In this way, the Tarragona University of the 16th century was restored.

The core mission of URV is to place knowledge at the service of society to contribute to sustainable social and economic development. The data show that the URV is not only one of the leading universities in Catalonia but also one of the leading universities in the European area for the quality of its teaching, its commitment to continuous training and the excellence of its research, development and innovation. The doctoral candidates will join the consolidated research group “Territory, Citizenship and Sustainability” and will be attached as pre-doctoral researchers to the Centre for Environmental Law Studies of Tarragona (CEDAT). CEDAT has become the reference centre for environmental and sustainability law in Spain and one of the most recognised at international level.
