The Vision of CEI Intelligent Energy is that of adopting energy and infrastructure solutions for accelerating the sustainable growth of regional economies thanks to the cooperation between four autonomous communities regions, universities and research centres and world leading companies in Bioenergy and Intelligent Infrastructures.
The challenge to approach from the viewpoint of bioenergy and intelligent infrastructures not only bears an environmental aspect, but also an economic and social one. It is necessary to improve social welfare with a more efficient use of resources, preserving biological diversity through the development of new capabilities and knowledge. The Intelligent Energy International Excellence Campus strives towards a leadership in knowledge generation built on both concepts, building on the strengths in areas specifically linked to a growth and development pattern, expanding it throughout the territory uniting Extremadura, Murcia, Madrid and Castile-La Mancha.
It is based on territorial and multi-institutional cooperation and on the capabilities the universities URJC, UAH, UM, UPCT, UEX, the companies REPSOL and FERROVIAL, the public research centres CIEMAT and IMDEA Energía and the institutional support of IDEA have developed within the area of bioenergy and intelligent infrastructures and that contribute to knowledge transfer and generation of wealth.
The campus is created with clear international vocation oriented towards cooperation, by means of the priority axes of the assembly call CEI 2011, with the purpose of achieving attraction and mobility of talent among researchers, professionals and students.
The Mission is that of constituting a campus of international prestige, with solid business alliances, within the field of Bioenergy and intelligent infrastructures, based on an open, innovative online university model that will generate leaders and entrepreneurs who will promote local socio-economic development, allowing a better social impact in university activity.
The CEI will act as an international pint of reference in the areas of creation, knowledge transfer and training of professionals in relation to bioenergies and global change, constituting itself as a motor of change and transformation towards a new model of economic growth starting in the four autonomous communities and extending to the world.
This is a campus with a clear and resolute focus on business, with a maximum involvement from the companies and a commitment to the transfer of technology as a differential axis.
