ABOUT SIUVP/

WHAT IS SIUVP?

SIUVP (Valencian Public University System of Information) is a project born in 2012 from the collaboration of the 5 Valencian public universities with the aim of offering a complete set of indicators on its activity and results.

SIUVP is a window to the Valencian university activity, through which universities account in a transparent manner to society, for the effectiveness and efficiency achieved in their performance. Students, families, businesses and the general public have access through this web-site to a comprehensive information system that consists of more than 60 indicators which are partially updated twice a year based on the latest available data.

The information in this platform allows the user to know the situation and development of the 5 universities in areas related to the supply and demand of degrees, the academic performance of their students, internationalization, research activity, knowledge transfer to society and economic results of its activity.

SIUVP is a system of indicators reached by the consensus and of 5 universities and the Ivie and shared by them. It is based on the joint work of the 5 universities through holding numerous meetings with technicians and managers from universities, in order to develop a common definition and methodology to provide consistent and comparable information.

SIUVP's PRINCIPLES

Transparency: the definition of each indicator and source of the data is public, to reinforce transparency and comparability.

  • Comparability: the definition of variables and the establishment of a common methodology for the calculation of the indicators are vital to allow comparability of information, both within and between the universities and over time.
  • Utility: SIUVP provides comprehensible information and metrics on university issues of general interest.
  • Reliability: the 5 Valencian universities are committed to ensure the quality of the information provided and its maintenance over time.
  • Validity: the variables and indicators are selected to reflect what actually is wanted to be measured.
  • Economy: It has established a system that minimizes the effort put in by the universities to supply the information, ensuring that the process of collecting, processing and data transmission is performed optimally.
