Since its creation, one of the main objectives of the CEO-UAB has been to disseminate knowledge on the Barcelona’92 Olympic Games and what they represented. 

In order to achieve this objective, CEO-UAB offers a number of different services to the international university community and stakeholders involved in the organisation of sporting events who want to know more about specific aspects of the organisation of the Barcelona’92 Olympic Games.

The CEO-UAB manages a significant collection of sources of knowledges on the Barcelona”92 Olympic Games, sources resulting from the staging of the Barcelona’92 Olympic Games and studies that academic researchers have done on them. The CEO-UAB offers a reference service aimed at the international community that facilitates access to holdings on the Olympic Games, including an official archive and impact and analysis studies, and contacts with staff of the organising committees and experts.


CEO-UAB is one of the leading partners of Barcelona Olímpica, a joint project of the Barcelona Olympic Foundation –legacy institution created after the Games–, the Barcelona Municipal Archives – holder of the Games official archive –, and our Olympic Studies Centre at the Autonomous University of Barcelona –a university unit devoted to research and disseminate the Games.

The Project was launched in 2012 and aims to preserve and disseminate the Olympic and sport memory of the city, and to support Olympic and sport studies.


The CEO-UAB collaborates with institutions connected with the legacy of the Barcelona’92 Olympic Games on the organisation of talks and visits for delegates from Olympic Games candidate cities and host cities. Adapted to the needs of each group, these activities are organised on request in collaboration with other organisations and experts in various fields.

If your organisation is interested in an activity of this type, please contact our team or explore the Barcelona’92 Legacy seminars programme we offer.

One of the main components of the legacy of the Olympic Games for the host community is the knowledge legacy.
