José Carlos Gómez Villamandos, new president of the Conference of Rectors of Spanish Universities

Last May 16th, the General Assembly of the Conference of Rectors of Spanish Universities (CRUE) chose José Carlos Gómez Villamandos as the new president of the institution by 69 votes in favour and 1 abstention. In this way, the rector of the University of Cordoba and president of ceiA3 replaces the University of Lleida rector Roberto Fernández, who held the position since October 2017.

In his first statements to the media, José Carlos Gómez Villamandos emphasized the most important thing is to continue what was being done and stay firm when elaborating new laws for the university and research, as well as cooperating with the government to achieve the standards in order to grow as a country and at university level.

Gómez Villamandos pointed out that an important visibility has been achieved and the idea of a new Law of Universities was put on the table during the years of Roberto Fernández’s presidency. In this way, he said that his priority will be “to specify and mark what the university of tomorrow should be” because “we must advance, be more competitive and place ourselves on the international scene.”

José Carlos Gómez Villamandos (Cordoba, 1963) is a professor in the Department of Comparative Anatomy and holds a PhD in Veterinary Medicine. He is rector of the University of Cordoba and president of the Agrifood Campus of International Excellence ceiA3 since June 2014 and he was elected CRUE-I+D+I president in March 2016. Moreover, he participated and lead different projects of Innovation and Teaching Improvement. As member of the Animal Pathology research group, he is the author of more than 125 articles in indexed journals of his specialty. He holds the Cross of the Military Order of Merit with White Distinction, Gold Medal to Professional Merit and Palme d'Or du Civisme et Dévouement International, among others.
