The University has placed ninth in Reuters’ top 100 annual ranking of what the international news agency calls the world’s most innovative universities.

Reuters started ranking universities on their innovation efforts four years ago, and American universities continue to hold the lead spots. Stanford University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University topped the latest list, maintaining their rankings of the first three years. The top 100 identifies and ranks the educational institutions that are judged to be doing the most to advance science, invent technologies and power new markets and industries.

The list, compiled in partnership with Clarivate Analytics, is based on proprietary data and analysis of numerous indicators, including patent filings and research paper citations.

The U.S. has 46 universities in the top 100; Germany and Japan are tied for second-best performing country, with nine universities each.
