Universitat Jaume I is a higher education and research institution created in 1991 that promotes the social, economic and cultural development of the society of its environment by means of the creation and transmission of knowledge. The UJI was born with a clear vocation to consolidate itself as a modern, dynamic and enterprising university.
Since its very origin UJI has developed a well deserved image of a technologically advanced university. It was the first Spanish institution which installed a web server and also the first one in developing a web searching tool in the early nineties.
The objective of making information and communication technologies the main tool in the educational process has been concreted in several projects regarding virtual learning, electronic administration, preservation of electronic documents or digital signature.
During the last years Universitat Jaume I has been distinguished with the EUNIS (European Universities Information Systems) 2006 Elite Award for Excellence and also with the ePractice.eu Good Practice label for 2007, based on the recommendation from the 2007 European eGovernment Awards consortium.
