More than half of the present day spiral galaxies have a stellar bar in their inner region. From the theoretical point of view, bar formation and evolution is still an open question that is far from a definitive answer.Cosmological numerical simulations of galaxy formation give the opportunity to study their origin and evolution. I will present some results about the properties of simulated disk galaxies using the EAGLE  set  of  cosmological N-body/dynamical simulations which show a wide range of bar strength, size and pattern speed. Although, bar formation correlates strongly with the properties of the galaxy dark matter halo we are still far from a unique predictive recipe.
