It is a great company with which we share objectives and collaboration will be very beneficial for society ”.

For José Millet, Vice-Rector for Employment and Entrepreneurship at the UPV, Jeanologia is a disruptive company, marked by the leadership of its CEO Enrique Silla: «It has a vision, it puts the means to make it a reality and it achieves it.» For Millet, this is the last Chair signed with him as vice-rector «it is a perfect finishing touch, because it brings together all the characteristics that we want in a chair, with activities aimed at the general good.»
