Do you want to be part of the BETA team?

BETA Technological center was born in November 2014 as a team of only 3 people. The enthusiasm and effort of our young, dynamic and multidisciplinary team has led us to be currently 70 people working cohesively with the mission of contributing to the sustainable development of rural societies to improve their competitiveness and quality of life.

The main impulse to fulfill this mission is both the execution of RTDI projects in the field of agri-food systems and environment and the transfer to the private sector of innovative and competitive technology that incorporates sustainability criteria. Another key aspect of our success has always been the international vision and projection, which has led us to participate in numerous networks and projects, weaving collaborations with relevant Catalan, Spanish, European and international entities.

From the BETA Center we are always open to meet and receive new profiles of dynamic, restless and eager to be part of our project and to help them grow professionally. That is why we encourage you to consult the positions that we have open, and in the case that you see that you do not fit, we will be happy to receive and evaluate your CV (info.beta@uvic.cat).
