US institutions top the inaugural Reuters Top 100 Most Innovative Universities table.
The inaugural Top 100 Most Innovative Universities ranking from Reuters has been revealed following the publication of four top-15 tables based on innovation from Times Higher Education.
The US comes out top of Reuters’ table of 100 institutions, taking nine of the top 10 positions. The sole non-US institution is Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in 10th place.
Imperial College London is the highest-ranked UK university in the list in 11th place, followed by the University of Cambridge in 25th and the University of Oxford in 40th.
The ranking aims to identify which institutions contribute the most to science and technology and have the greatest impact on the global economy. It is based on 10 patent and research-related metrics, which have been compiled using proprietary data and analysis tools from the Intellectual Property and Science division of Thomson Reuters.
Elsewhere in Europe, Switzerland is a stand-out performer. With three universities on the list and a population of just over 8 million, it has more top 100 innovative universities per capita than any other country in the world. Its top institution, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, sits in 27th place.
Japan is home to nine of the universities on the list – more than any other country except the US. Osaka University, its highest-ranked institution, is at number 18.
