Research and Knowledge Transfer Centre | CRITT

CRITT building 

The Escola Tècnica Superior d'Arquitectura del Vallès, ETSAV, runs its own Research and Knowledge Transfer Centre (CRITT) since 2006. Its purpose is to house cooperation programmes, research institutions and projects, as well as knowledge transfer agreements closely involved in the areas of expertise the school is focusing on, such as the sustainable environment, urban regeneration and architectural technology.

By means of this centre, the school underlines its commitment to foster innovation, territorial attachment and collaboration with public and private institutions, thus defining its own academic profile and positively affecting the quality of teaching.
