The Chair will depend hierarchically on the Bages University Foundation (FUB) and the Health and Social Studies Centre (CESS). The Chair will strive to establish covenants and collaboration agreements with entities and institutions that are in line with its objectives. As a priority, it will do so with the Department of Health of the Generalitat of Catalonia, as well as with other academic and professional institutions and associations (SESSEP, SCIS, SESAM, etc ...)
