The Agrifood Campus of International Excellence (CEIA3) is a joint initiative between the universities of Almeria (UAL), Cadiz (UCA), Huelva (UHU), Jaen (UJA) and Cordoba (UCO). Headed by the UCO, the objectives of the CEIA3 are ambitious and require a firm social commitment given that the agrifood sector of Andalusia provides a promising future for our students and many other young people.
