Article
Full-text available
International mobility programmes embed higher education (HE) students in a learning process in which they gain key knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs), some of them crucial in pursuing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We propose an innovative theoretical framework that links such KSAs to the UNESCO’s Key Competences for Sustainability...
Article
While public research organisations (PROs) are increasingly expected to transfer knowledge to businesses and other stakeholders, their engagement in knowledge transfer (KT) activities is still under-researched. Better understanding of PROs' KT engagement, including how it is shaped by PROs' organisational characteristics, could lead to better tailo...

En este informe se analizan las características del tejido productivo y el mercado de trabajo en España, con el fin de identificar la magnitud de la brecha digital (brechas de acceso, de uso y competencial) y los ámbitos en los que es necesario incidir para que nuestro país se sume de forma exitosa a esta revolución digital, con el capital humano a...
Article
Full-text available
ABSTRACT Nowadays, the interaction between universities and their territories (engagement or third mission) is considered a core mission of universities whatever the country and the policymaker. Still, this third mission is an ambiguous notion and there is no consensus in the scientific community about its definition and system of indicators, hinde...
Article
Paper available in English and Spanish // Artículo publicado en inglés y en español University systems with a high level of academic inbreeding tend to be closed to attracting (inter)national talent, while instead prioritizing retention of the human factor in the institution and the stabilization and continuity of internal bureaucratic dynamics. T...
Article
- Purpose: the purpose of this study is to analyse how different patterns of production factors consumption of Spanish universities lead to specific technology transfer (TT) profiles (outcomes). - Design/methodology/approach: adopting a resource-based view perspective (RBV), qualitative comparative analysis (QCA) is used to analyse the relationsh...

It provides practitioners with a tool for self-reflection on their institutional commitment with the development of the mobility-related soft attitudes, skills an...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Students participating in mobility experiences have a great learning opportunity, but in many cases they hardly realise about the soft-competences they developed during mobility. In this context, the supporting role of universities is key for students to make the most of their mobility and be able to communicate their learning outcomes. This study...

Article
Full-text available
Universities are organizational structures with individual activity mixes or strategies that lead to different performance levels by mission. Evaluation techniques based on performance indicators or rankings risk rewarding just a specific type of university and undermining university diversification: they usually introduce homogenising pressures an...
Article
It has been suggested that higher education institutions (HEIs) may develop different activity profiles (including research, teaching and socio-economic engagement) in their attempt to maximise the fit between institutional resources and strategic opportunities; the latter include strategies of engagement with different groups of external stakehold...
Article
Full-text available
Following the international trend, Spanish universities have long ago included among their fundamental tasks the third mission of universities and have advanced in the formalisation and structuration of knowledge transfer, life-long learning and outreach activities. The development of the third mission was not gradual, but shaped by the evolution o...
Article
There is currently a heterogeneous distribution of public and private funding within the 47 public universities providing on-campus education in Spain. Apparently, such heterogeneity is among the consequences of the different application of RD Law 14/2012 in each Spanish region (Comunidad Autónoma). However, in some cases, there is also heterogenei...
Article
Full-text available
This article examines how knowledge transfer (KT) indicators affect analyses on efficiency in the Higher Education sector, taking into account the characteristics of the Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). After revising the concept of third mission as a field for data development and its importance in assessing university performance, we applied...
Article

Resumen We examine the regional evolution, dispersion and mobility of Spanish tuition fees using sigma and gamma convergence methodologies. The period of analysis varies depending on the type of study considered, being the maximum period between 1992 and 2014. The analysis reveals an increase of tuition fees over time. With regards to σ-convergenc...
Article
Full-text available
New public management and increasing levels of competition driven by global rankings are bringing the managerial practices of public and private higher education institutions closer together. However, these two types of institutions still maintain different objectives and traditions and enjoy different degrees of autonomy that are reflected in thei...
Chapter
In recent years, the higher education (HE) sector has undergone a drastic transformation due to the globalisation of knowledge. World university rankings have supported this process and have fostered the consolidation of the global market of HE (Salmi, 2009; Altbach & Salmi, 2011). These global rankings (mainly, the Academic Ranking of World Univer...
Chapter
In this chapter we integrate Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and Multidimensional Scaling (MDS) with the aim to discuss the potential complementarities and advantages of combining both methodologies in order to reveal the efficiency framework and strategies of organisations. To do so we use the example of the Spanish HE system. MDS empowers efficie...

En épocas muy recientes, la filantropía y el concepto de “captación de fondos” o fundraising se está convirtiendo en un tema de gran interés para las universidades públicas europeas en general, y las españolas en particular, debido a la contracción de la financiación de origen público provocada por la crisis económica y al agotamiento de las fuente...
Chapter

Las universidades españolas han sido consideradas como universidades homogéneas, con características y estructuras productivas similares, reconociéndose diferencias jurídicas únicamente entre las instituciones públicas y privadas. Aunque todas las universidades comparten legalmente las mismas misiones y el Sistema Universitario Español (SUE) es apa...

Although global rankings do not classify national university systems, the majority of countries are reformulating their HE policies to improve the ranking position of their best universities. Accordingly, this paper studies the case of France and Spain through the analysis of their respective national policies for the promotion of university intern...

Project
The Erasmus Skills project (www.erasmusskills.eu) provides a set of innovative tools to help Erasmus students to enhance and acknowledge the soft skills and competences gained thanks to their mobility experience. The variety of tools produced provide support both to students – before, during and after their mobility experience – and to the university teachers and practitioners – on how to back Erasmus students for a more conscious soft skills acquisition: TOOLS FOR STUDENTS - Erasmus+ App – a new functionality to self-assess learning mobility results - Webinars on European citizenship and the Erasmus+ programme: next webinar will take place in January 2020 TOOLS AND RESOURCES FOR UNIVERSITY PRACTITIONERS AND LECTURERS - Guide for Practitioners: guidelines to improve the institutional support to student development of mobility-related soft skills and competences. - Guidelines to design workshops on European values and culture, European integration and mobility-related skills, attitudes and knowledge, tailored to prepare students prior to the mobility period and facilitating integration upon return. - Methodology to embed learning mobility outcomes (knowledge, skills and attitudes) in curricula. First results will be released soon in our website (www.erasmusskills.eu), but in the meantime you can contact us at: erasmus.skills@uam.es The Erasmus Skills project is co-funded by the European Commission. Project number: 2018-1-ES01-KA203-050439. Erasmus+ KA 203. Starting date: September 2018. End date: October 2020.
