For the past five years, Reuters has compiled a list that ranks the world’s most innovative universities that are doing the most “to advance science, invent new technologies and power new markets and industries.”
Stanford has topped the list for 2019, followed by MIT, then Harvard. They have all held the same positions for five years in a row. The list is compiled in partnership with Clarivate Analytics, and is based “on proprietary data and analysis including patent filings and research paper citations.”
“Overall, the United States continues to dominate the list, with 46 universities in the top 100, the same as the year prior. Germany is the second best performing country with nine universities. France climbs to third, with eight universities on the list; Japan, South Korea and the United Kingdom each have 6; China has 4; the Netherlands and Switzerland have 3; Belgium, Canada, Israel and Singapore have 2, and Denmark has 1. Considered on a regional basis, North America has 48 universities in the top 100, Europe has 32 (up five from last year), Asia has 18 (down five), and the Middle East has 2. There are no universities in the top 100 located in Africa, South America or Oceania.”
