In terms ofincome, the university increased its income compared to the previous academic year by around 4 million euros, although it did not reach the forecast due to the cancellation of activities at the second semesterdue to the pandemic.

With regard to the income forecast for this academic year, an increase is foreseen for professor, the most important item of the University of Navarra's budget(more than 85% of the total).

On the expenditure side, staff, which accounts for more than 60% of the university's expense, is expected to increase by around two million euros, mainly due to the increase in teaching staff and staffadministration and services staff required to cater for the higher number of students issue. For the same reason, an increase in the university's activity costs is expected, especially in the external services heading. The University has also planned a major effort in cleaning, adaptation of spaces and other COVID measures, with a value of 1.8 million euros.
