The aim of this paper is to present and analyze the research from the Spanish University System for the period 2003-2012. This is a descriptive study using publications in Web of Science and other input and output of R&D from official sources. The data were obtained from the third edition of IUNE (Investigación en la Universidad Española) Observatory (2014). The results show that the number of teachers was 60000 per year with an increase of 14% in the decade studied. The number of documents published in WoS was 332351, increasing by 112% in these 10 years. The most productive area was Experimental Sciences (40%). One of the most important characteristics is the growth of international collaboration (35% to 42%). Impact indicators show an average of 11 citations per document, 48% of papers published in journals in the first quartile (Q1) and 7% in TOP3. Data on patents, theses defended, predoctoral fellowships, and participation in national and European Union programs, complete the overview of the research activities into the Spanish universities system. These results show a sustained increase in productivity and a clear tendency to the internationalization of research activity of the universities.
