DTU jumps eight places on ranking

Friday 12 Oct 18

The University now ranks as #57 in the world, #1 the Nordic countries, and #13 in Europe.

Three of DTU's alliance universities are also on the list: The Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) ranks #11, the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is #12, and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) is #45.  

Reuters releases two innovation rankings each year: a European ranking in the spring and a world rankings in the autumn. The two rankings are based on different methods and are therefore not directly comparable.     

The Reuters Top 100 World's Most Innovative Universities indicators are:

  1. Patent Volume
  2. Patent Success
  3. Global Patents
  4. Patent Citations
  5. Patent Citation Impact
  6. Percent of Patents Cited
  7. Patent to Article Citation Impact
