integrated social value analysis: the case of the university pompeu fabra
Category: Impact Metrics and Capacitation
Goal: Quantify in monetary terms the social value created by the University Pompeu Fabra (UPF), and create a standardized methodology to be used by the universities providing an accounting system to report their social value created
Motivation: We all agree that universities perform a critical role in our societies by educating future generations, performing research and transferring knowledge. But how can we better understand the value created by the university to the society? This project aims to assess and quantify in monetary terms the social value created by the UPF to offer a clear picture to all the university’s stakeholders of how this institution is contributing to our society’s progress and welfare. By performing this analysis, we also will provide a standardized framework and accounting methodology to be used for similar higher education institutions.
Expected Impact: A comprehensive methodology to quantify the social value for universities. A report will also be published with the specific results obtained for the UPF.
