Campus of the FutureThe UPM Campus of the Future attempts to integrate innovation in Cities within University activities. It is framed in the City of the Future initiative, led by Professor Javier Uceda, as well as in the Master in City Sciences, led by Professor José María de Lapuerta, MCS Director and developed by MCS alumni with MCS professor support.
The UPM Campus of the Future goes beyond being a bare sustainable strategic plan. It is rather an opportunity to gather stakeholders under the same framework of principles, providing them with the missing tools, and enabling them to create added value to the community’s well-being. By doing so, the UPM would be taken to the next level, reaching recognition as one of the best educational institutions worldwide, and providing its students, faculty and staff with the best development opportunities possible.
The development of the strategic plan is based on three values: time required, resources needed and the impact on the campus, people and quality of life. Campus of the future UPM is configured in a three axis ecosystem based on the relative position of each value by comparison with the others.
