What is the UNESCO Chair?
It is an agreement between UNESCO and an academic institution (Universitat Rovira i Virgili) for a renewable period of two years time (starting Mar. 6, 2007, and currently renewed until Mar. 22, 2011).
It must do research, training and dissemination in a field considered relevant by UNESCO for the welfare of humankind (data privacy).
It is not directly funded by UNESCO, but by whatever funds the UNESCO umbrella can help raise (e.g. URV, Government of Catalonia, etc.).
It can have associated participating institutions.
