Within this project, the University of Barcelona hosts the academic unit UB-Bullipedia, to support and counsel Bullipedia project. This unit, located on the first floor of la Masía Building at the Food and Nutrition campus of the UB, in Santa Coloma de Gramenet, was created as a result of the agreement signed by the rector of the UB and Ferran Adrià as a representative of El Bulli Foundation on 23rd October 2012.

The academic side of Bullipedia will be developed in several connected fields: history of West culinary art by means of recovering historical documents; science and cooking, in which scientific knowledge will be applied to cooking in order to develop new ideas and projects; the analysis of cooking techniques studied at universities and cooking schools to structure information; the study of cooking products; cooking terminology; creativity and cooking (application of the creative process which links art and cooking), and companies organisation and management.
