Abstract: Abstract: References in patent documents are sources of information about access to public knowledge to claim novelty or lack of novelty in the invention. The usual distinction breaks references down by type of cited literature but we do it by type of cited institution –more original. We focus on universities and compare Spain with the European Union 27 at national, regional and institutional levels. Spanish and European university public knowledge is similar: it is highly internationalised and American universities are the most accessed. Spain presents some idiosyncrasies: sporadic access to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, frequent to Dutch and Israeli universities. Access to universities from the same region occurs more often than in other Member States (due mainly to regions other than Madrid). Access to Spanish universities is relatively low from Germany, and the only one cited above the European average is the Autonomous University of Madrid. We give policymakers some recommendations to modify these characteristics according to some desirability criteria.
