The UAB ranks first according to the CYD Foundation
The CYD Foundation recently presented the results of the sixth edition of its CYD Ranking, the ranking which evaluates the greatest number of universities in Spain (73 over 81). This foundation aims mainly to analyse and foster the contribution of universities to the economic and social development of Spain, as well as to broaden the ties between universities and businesses.

The Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), our partner, obtains the maximum score possible in 29 (five more than last year) of the 36 ranking indicators and is this year's top university, followed by the Autonomous University of Madrid and the University of Navarra.

The ranking divides these indicators into five "dimensions": teaching and learning, research, international orientation, contribution to regional development, and knowledge transfer.

Of the nine indicators evaluated in teaching and learning, the UAB obtained a top score in seven. In research, the UAB obtained the highest score in 8 of the 9 indicators analysed. Five out of six of the international orientation indicators also elevate the UAB to the top performance group. The UAB also obtained a maximum score in 2 of the 4 indicators in contribution to regional development.

Finally we want to point out the very good results obtained in knowledge transfer that for our Park, is particularly relevant. The UAB receives actually the highest score in seven of the eight indicators evaluated: private funding, publications in private enterprises, patents per lecturer, income per licence, spin-offs, cited patent publications and income for continuous training.

Congratulations!
