The Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) celebrates the #UPMDay22  next 17th and 18th of May 2022 at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium (Madrid). It will be a 360º activity, which will mark a before and after in the way of linking the worlds of the university and the industry, with parallel agendas and different activities.

Likewise, the business sector will be present, in an environment where communication and the exchange of ideas and projects will be favoured.


The Centro de Biotecnología y Genómica de Plantas (CBGP, UPM-INIA/CSIC), a joint center between the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) and the Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Tecnología Agraria y Alimentaria recently integrated into the CSIC (INIA-CSIC), recently integrated into the CSIC (INIA-CSIC), participates in #UPMDay22 by organizing several activities. The CBGP is a reference center that is accredited as Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence by the Excellence programme of the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation.


The vocation of the CBGP (UPM-INIA/CSIC) is to contribute to sustainable development and to increase the competitiveness of research in the agricultural, forestry and environmental sectors in the context of the bioeconomy. Its mission is the generation of knowledge in the field of biotechnology and plant genomics, and the training of students and professionals in these fields. Coinciding with UPMDay22, we are launching our new institutional video that can be viewed both in Spanish and English version through the following links:

The CBGP-SusLUTIONS event is conceived as a great opportunity to share the scientific-technological capabilities of CBGP and the innovative potential of our researchers. The Centre's technological development is supported by the cutting-edge knowledge of our researchers and the excellent science they develop. At this meeting, CBGP (UPM-INIA/CSIC) researchers will also have a great opportunity to learn about the needs of the industry and the sector, and they will be able to establish collaborations with the aim of leading the transformation of agricultural production and addressing the challenges we are currently facing, such as those included in the European Union Green Deal and in the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
