What is the OPRI: 

The International Project Office (OPRI) is an office linked to the Vice-rectorate of Research, responsible for the management of international research projects at UCAM.

The OPRI was founded to strengthen the collaboration between our partners all around the world in the field of research. The unit was established in 2012 and has built strong alliances in 36 countries in which the university has to date participated in 41 projects.

The internationalization of the Catholic University of Saint Anthony, through the OPRI, is directed towards all of the university community, researchers as well as students. A total of 160 students have participated already in projects in a variety of countries all over the continent.

Currently we are leading international projects like “EUROLAB-4HPC”, “ACDDTHPC” and “Discovery of novel blood anticoagulants using hybrid artificial intelligence techniques” in the area of computational bioinformatics inside the calls Horizon 2020, 7FP and NILS.

UCAM also has been awarded a postdoctoral Marie Curie with the project “POCBIOPEP” related to the study of cellular markers in blood from the intake of POrk Cured BIOactive PEPtides. Likewise, the UCAM, recognized by European institutions for its work in research and management of sports projects, such as dual career (education + sport) is coordinating the projects “ESTPORT” and “SPIIS” inside the call Erasmus+ Sport.
