Greds-Emconet UPF

Greds-Emconet UPF

In 1990, the Catalonian Parliament created a new public university, Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) inspired by the principles of freedom, democracy, justice, equality, independence and plurality. Despite its youth and size, UPF has scored high in the main international rankings as a university of excellence.

The Health Inequalities Research Group - Employment Conditions Network (GREDS-EMCONET) is a research group at UPF. The main mission of GREDS-EMCONET is to generate scientific information and transfer knowledge to civil society in the area of health inequalities. GREDS-EMCONET has long experience in the study of how employment and working conditions affect health inequalities, focusing on the social origin and production of these inequalities as well as the political action necessary to tackle them.
