Social impact and transformation

At the University of Deusto we cannot understand research without knowledge transfer. As a major driver of social transformation and impact, it is our social responsibility to transfer the knowledge generated by our researchers to the market to generate value, contribute to the advancement of knowledge and technological development, business innovation and competitiveness, socio-economic progress and improve citizens' quality of life. 

This commitment to our environment and collaboration with the rest of the ecosystem, such as political, social, economic, cultural or institutional actors, positions Deusto as a benchmark university in major fields or preferential and cross-cutting themes that respond to major societal challenges.
