The Severo Ochoa call in the press - What is excellence in research?

Following the provisional resolution of this year's Severo Ochoa Centers of Excellence call, there has been a hustle and bustle in the press and in the social networks regarding the criteria of excellence of the Severo Ochoa programme, and the fact that the ICIQ (Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia) is not within the selected members. 

Here are some of the articles (in chronological order) appeared in the press. The first article is especially interesting because it features some of criteria of excellence that the evaluation panel takes into account for this excellence call: the gender balance, the presence of internal and international collaborations and the technology transfer in patents licensed.
