Browsing profiles

The contents have been distributed as five browsing groups: Users, Professionals, Corporate Information, Research and Teaching. These groups allow us to distribute the contents according to the profile that is most appropriate to the web browser. At any time, even if a profile has been chosen, the rest can be accessed via the menu above, without any need to retrace steps.

Each profile is differentiated using colours to make it easier to find where we are at any given moment.
