    “Identity for University of Vigo, Spain. A bespoke typeface was created to give a contemporary look & feel and make it socially recognizable. The combination of a classic typeface for the logo, solving the dichotomy ‘Universidade de Vigo’, together with the bespoke typeface, reflecting the tradition and spirit of the institution’s future.” — Solo

      The multiline font appears to be Prismaset! The S is an alternate.

      You mean Lineto’s LL Prismaset? It’s indeed a typeface that comes close, but this has 10 lines, while Prismaset is available with 1, 2, 3, and 5 lines. Also, the 0 is less elongated and the 9 less steep. Granted, these could all be modifications. But what really suggests to me that it’s not Prismaset are the bumpy transitions where the arches meet. This is handled better in Lineto’s typeface, see the center part of its alternate S here:
