In 2011, the ACUP published a book titled “Impacts of Public Catalan Universities on Society” which illustrates the strength of the university system in Catalonia. Today, the presentation of this report aims to update and increase this examination of the university’s research and innovation efforts. This report is divided into three chapters and an appendix. The beginning of each chapter contains a brief summary explaining the different results presented. This is followed by tables and graphs which illustrate key data along with commentary emphasising some of the more notable points in the evolution of the variables analysed.
