Our story

The Region Of Murcia’s Fundación Universidad Empresa was created in 1988 by the University of Murcia, the Region of Murcia's Chamber of Commerce, industry and navigation, the business association CROEM, the INFO and a large number of companies acting individually. Shortly afterwards, the Polytechnic University of Cartagena was added to the list when it was separated from the University of Murcia. 


FUERM’s primary aim is encouraging communication, dialogue and joint activity between the University and business in order to promote and carry out all sorts of studies and research of interest to both parties and contribute to the growth and development of the Region of Murcia.
