Last week the annual Reuters Top 100 with Europe’s Most Innovative Universities 2019 was announced, a list that identifies the educational institutions doing the most to advance science, invent new technologies and power industry.
The Netherlands ranks 4th on the list with three universities in the top 25. Nine out of fourteen Dutch research universities are listed. This is an increase compared to last year. Leiden University ranks as best Dutch institute on the 14th place, followed by Delft University of Technology on the 16th place and Utrecht University on the 25th place.
The top ranks of Europe’s Most Innovative Universities remain remarkably steady. For the fourth consecutive year, KU Leuven tops Reuters Europe’s Most Innovative Universities Ranking. German universities account for more entrants than any other country, with 23 institutions in the top 100, the same as last year; the United Kingdom has 21 schools, also no change; France is third with 18 universities, followed by the Netherlands with nine, Belgium with seven, Spain and Switzerland each with five, Italy with four, Denmark with three, Norway with two, and Austria, Ireland and Poland with one.
