The ranking published by the IUNE Observatory, an initiative of the Alliance 4 Universities, aims to spread and analyse the scientific and technological activity of Spanish universities. Therefore, the Observatory analyses universities’ activity based on an extensive set of indicators, grouped into seven areas: teaching staff, recognition, scientific activity, innovation, competitiveness, funding and training capacity.

Within scientific activity, the results are listed according to six areas of knowledge (Architecture, Engineering and Computer Science; Art and Humanities; Life Sciences; Experimental Sciences; Social Sciences; and Medicine and Pharmacology) and are listed for all areas or by area.
