Quality

To work as lecturer, professor or researcher in a Catalan university, it is necessary to obtain a quality report from AQU, the Catalan Agency for the Quality of the University System.

  • In 2012, I obtained a favourable report to work as "Tenure-track lecturer" (professor lector).

Also, our research is evaluated in batches of six years. Currently, I have the following periods favorably evaluated by AQU:

  • 2006-2011.

Footnotes:

1 My family name is Quintana Seguí, not Seguí. Since 2011, in all my publications I'm writing my name as "Pere Quintana-Seguí", to avoid this confusion. Read more about the Spanish naming convention here.

2 I made a difference between mother tongue and native speaker, which are usually considered synonyms. Catalan is my mother tongue because this is the language my parents transmitted to me, and, in fact, it is also the language I mainly use with family, friends and coworkers. However, Spanish is widely used in the Catalan speaking regions of Spain. In fact, in Spain, every speaker of Catalan is also a speaker of Spanish. We learn both languages at school and we also use both of them everyday, switching languages very often. Therefore we all speak Spanish as well as any other Spaniard, even though, technically, it is not our mother tongue.

3 I lived in French speaking countries for five years, working in this language. I even wrote my PhD thesis in French.
