IE University and the Instituto Cervantes, Spain’s official language and arts center, have signed an agreement to promote the study of humanities disciplines in education. As part of this initiative, the two institutions will jointly organize educational and cultural activities, as well as academic and research projects that enhance their commitment to the dissemination of knowledge.

IE University, through its Arts and Humanities division, works to enrich the learning experience and develop the critical thinking of its undergraduate and graduate students from more than 140 countries. Among its activities, it organizes seminars, workshops, conferences, master classes and cultural events that allow students to deepen their knowledge in areas such as history, philosophy, art, music, etc., and apply that knowledge to management and problem solving from a humanist perspective. The institution’s students will benefit from this collaboration with the Instituto Cervantes starting this year.

Sovereign wealth funds were most active in the technology (25% of deals), services (18%) and life sciences (17.6%) sectors, according to the 2020 Sovereign Wealth Funds Report by IE University and ICEX-Invest in Spain

There were 95 active sovereign wealth funds (SWFs) managing more than $9 trillion of assets for the first time, an 8% increase over the previous year.

The sectors in which SWFs were most active were technology, with 25% of deals; services (18%) and life sciences (17.6%), according to the latest 2020 Sovereign Wealth Funds Report, drawn up by IE University’s Center for the Governance of Change, in partnership with ICEX-Invest in Spain and presented today. The report analyzes 165 deals worth $43 billion. The USA, UAE, China, India and Mexico accounted for the largest share of sovereign investment in the period under study.

According to its authors, the period showed a recovery in infrastructure, linked to natural gas, transport and telecommunications, following a detailed analysis of the 42 industries in which investments were made. The interest in real estate also continued, with strong investment in the industrial segment (warehouses, logistics centers and industrial premises), together with counter-cyclical investment in offices and hotels, both pre- and post-pandemic, which are proving highly lucrative for long-term investors.
