The IUNE Observatory is the result of the work of a group of researchers from universities that comprise 4U Alliance: Carlos III University of Madrid, Autonomous University of Madrid, Autonomous University of Barcelona and Pompeu Fabra University.
The IUNE Observatory philosophy is based on four fundamental pillars:
- Characterization of scientific activity of universities by a wide range of indicators, weighted, mostly by professors from each institution.
- Use of official, contrasted and reliable information sources.
- Analysis of comparable data which is also easily accessible.
- Discussion and contrast of selected indicators, including results obtained, with experts.
