For the research being carried out at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC), a new web portal now exists, research.ulpgc.es, the aim of which is to concentrate all the information generated as far as Research, Innovation and Transfer are concerned, with a two-fold objective:
• to promote the research and innovation work carried out on a daily basis at the ULPGC, providing students, lecturers and research staff with information concerning the resources at their disposal
• informing society about the knowledge generated at the ULPGC, so that any person with an interest can have access to the information and contacts needed for a real transfer of the knowledge generated every day at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
This new portal was set in motion by the Vice-Rector’s Office for Research, Innovation and Transfer, run by the Vice Rector, José Pablo Suárez Rivero, in the interest of institutional transparency and dissemination of the scientific culture, but also as a meeting point for researchers and a benchmark for those involved and interested in research by the ULPGC.
This portal has information about research figures, action plans, current projects, regulations, public notices, news and scientific culture, among others, and also has a YouTube video channel in which highly respected researchers who visit the ULPGC and research groups from the university itself explain what they do, in a language aimed at a broad audience. It also has a Twitter account, @ulpgcresearch, and a Facebook page.
