"Starting with a blank canvas has allowed us to create a University that can respond to global issues as well as priorities of relevance to our locality. Our research will make a meaningful international contribution to Gibraltar, the Mediterranean and beyond. We are not held back by outmoded traditions or bureaucratic structures and thus we are able to respond quickly to new opportunities. This freedom enables us to convene cutting-edge thinking, attract talent and trigger innovation, which will inject dynamism and vitality into our society."
