An interactive tool that adapts to different target audiences
The ranking by the Fundación CyD, which uses the philosophy of the EC’s U-Multirank, made on the basis of relative indicators, aims to be an interactive and comparative tool where it is the user who seeks and selects the universities based on categories that s/he deems important.
It is designed to provide information and decision-making criteria both for future students, university administrators, lecturers, researchers, public authorities, companies and other social stakeholders wishing to establish links with a university. The data included in the analysis come from various sources, with the aim of facilitating broad and comprehensive information: data provided by the institutions directly, data from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport, bibliometric and patent data.
