Almería, Spain (PortSEurope) June 20, 2021 – Juan García, the vice-rector for Postgraduate, Employability and Relations with Companies and Institutions expressed the necessity to expand the framework of collaboration between the port and the university, accompanied by Carmen Pérez, director of Relations with Companies and Institutions of the UAL, at the end of the meeting with the top managers of the Port Authority of Almería. 
In the development of the link between the University of Almería and its immediate surroundings, it was marked in red to make a closer approach to the Port Authority, so a meeting prepared by Juan García was scheduled together with his work team and that, indeed, it has had very satisfactory results. A new series of collaboration lines will be implemented that will not neglect research, of course, as one of its pillars, but also focus on training in various formats and areas of action. Juan García valued the undeniable role as an economic and social engine that the Port Authority has, as well as its great possibilities to continue providing wealth and development, something of which the UAL is going to be a part as a promoter of the same. The new projects to be tackled have to do with talent management, initiating internships in bachelor’s degrees and master’s degrees at the University of Almería, which will be in different areas, curricular and extracurricular. Other possible directions are the creation of a joint permanent chair or seminar. Jesús Caicedo, considers the proposals of the University of Almería very interesting, some proposals that come to expand collaboration that the two institutions have maintained for years, in areas such as sustainability, and that is reflected in the agreement for the environmental monitoring of the ports of Almería and Carboneras, which they sign annually together with the company Medgaz and the consignees J. Ronco and Logística López Guillén. Another issue put on the table was to ‘share’, given the high degree of common interests, different actions of the ‘Aula Marina’, belonging to the Campus of International Excellence of the Sea, but which could be integrated into the ambitious Project Port-City, called to even change the relationship of the Almeria population with the Mediterranean. The topics discussed provided knowledge and ranged from pollution control and environmental management, to the impact of the port on the economy of the area, through technical assistance for market or technology study.
