The paper proposes a multivariate approach to study the dependence of the scientific productivity on the human research potential in the Italian University system. In spite of the heterogeneity of the system, Redundancy Analysis is exploited to analyse the University research system as a whole. The proposed approach is embedded in an exploratory data analysis framework.
