About us

The U-Ranking project is a joint initiative of the BBVA Foundation and the Ivie, forming part of their long history of collaboration to generate information and develop analysis on significant social and economic problems.

The BBVA Foundation expresses the corporate social responsibility of the BBVA Group and, in particular, its dedication to improving the societies where it conducts its business activity. This responsibility and commitment has led to an extensive history of generating public goods in the area of knowledge.

The Valencian Institute of Economic Research (Ivie) aims to develop, foster and project economic research at a national and international level.

The U-Ranking Project was carried out by the following Ivie team:

  • Francisco Pérez (Dir.) (University of Valencia and Ivie)

Collaboration with Alianza 4 Universidades (IUNE Group)

The Ivie has collaborated with members of the IUNE Observatory, belonging to Alianza 4 Universidades, in all matters related to research data and transfer, particularly in the area of Bibliometrics. The IUNE Observatory is the result of work carried out by a group of researchers from the universities that make up the «Allianza 4U» (Carlos III University of Madrid, Autonomous University of Madrid, Autonomous University of Barcelona and Pompeu Fabra University). The general coordinator of IUNE is Elías Sanz-Casado, professor of Documentation at Carlos III University of Madrid and director of the Laboratory for Metric Information Studies.
