Conclusions

The research results and efficiency of the Catalan system places it in a prominent position within Spain and in an intermediate position internationally.

In terms of attracting financial resources from both competitive and non-competitive sources, Catalan public universities have seen a continuing downward trend, with 19% fewer resources. Analysed in greater detail, it is clear that competitive resources at the national level as well as non-competitive resources are on the decline, and the only funding that has increased is that from the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission, with a 27% increase compared to 2011.
