The Vice President for Analysis and Strategic Planning of the US, Carmen Barroso, has presented this new service, which was created in response to the commitment of the government team to implement a “data-centric” strategy. The ultimate goal of this office is to implement, in the long term, a centralized system for the management of all the information of the US. With this, the aim is to support the decision-making of the governing bodies, as well as to have an instrument that, in a systematic, simple and transparent manner, informs society of outstanding aspects of university activity.

To achieve this objective, the Office has designed an action plan for the coming years detailing its different stages and methodology.
