The IUNE Observatory praises UCAM for its cooperation with the business world

In its 2022 report, it ranks the university as the second university in Spain in terms of R&D and consultancy contracts

UCAM continues to stand out and improve in the reports and rankings

published by different institutions. This time, the IUNE 2022 edition, prepared by

the '4U Alliance', formed by the universities Carlos III de Madrid, Autónoma de

Madrid, Autónoma de Barcelona and Pompeu Fabra, reflects the progress of

the Universidad Católica de Murcia in the scientific field
and its positioning at

national level. 

As a result of the work carried out by the institution chaired by José Luis

, the IUNE report highlights that, in 2020, UCAM was the second

university in Spain in terms of R&D contracts
and consultancies per 100

lecturers. Estrella Núñez, UCAM Vice-rector for Research, points out the

importance of this data: ‘These results are a product of our president’s firm commitment to

promote quality research which provides a service to society in general and to

the business world in particular.’

In the field of private universities, the Universidad Católica de Murcia is the

second most cited university in terms of scientific articles
and theses defended

per lecturer. It’s also the third in terms of theses defended and number of

citations per lecturer. In Estrella Núñez's opinion, these figures, corresponding

to the year 2020, reflect ‘the great effort and quality work carried out by our

, as well as the spirit of constant improvement present in all the

activities we conduct at UCAM.’
