The Ivie has developed 3 reports, presented in 2009, 2012 and 2015, on the socio-economic contribution of the Valencian Public University System (SUPV). This fourth study reinforces Valencia’s position as a benchmark in Spain in the design of support tools for university policy-making authorities. In addition, it aims to achieve the following specific objectives:
- To develop comparable and up-to-date information on SUPV and each of the five universities (University of Valencia, Polytechnic University of Valencia, University of Alicante, Jaume I University and Miguel Hernández de Elche University) that comprise the system, in order to have more knowledge on their performance and recent results in activities such as teaching, research and transfer.
- To analyze significant challenges that have arisen as a result of the economic, institutional and social changes that have occurred in the last decade. The objective of this analysis is to assess the effects of these changes on public universities and to respond to the challenges facing the Valencian society, and especially younger generations who will shape the future of our economy and society.
- To periodically develop reports with a similar design that detail the evolution of the Valencian Public University System, confirming the universities’ commitment with the administrations and society to enhance and promote efficiency, transparency and accountability.
