The results of the seventh RAEX (Expert RA) Universities Ranking were presented at the 6th International University Forum in Moscow on June 6. In 2018, the UNN improved its position in this ranking by rising to the 26th place. Also, the UNN improved its performance in the field of research, and now it occupies the 17th position. The University was represented at the forum by UNN Rector Professor Evgeny Chuprunov, Vice-Rector for Public Relations Nikita Avralev and Head of the UNN press service Irina Efimova.

According to Evgeny Chuprunov, the University conducts unique research in the most relevant areas, which is confirmed by its high positions in this rating. "Our university is working at the forefront of science, it uses the most modern equipment and attracts scientists with a worldwide reputation thereby confirming that the UNN is one of the leading universities not only in Russia but also in the world. This, in particular, has become possible thanks to the implementation of the Russian academic excellence project, in which the UNN is taking part," said Evgeny Chuprunov.

Within the framework of the Forum, the award ceremony for the best universities of Russia in different areas of activity was held. Lobachevsky University became a laureate in the "Innovation Activity" nomination.

The RAEX (Expert RA) ranking of universities is published annually starting from 2012. The aim of university ranking is to assess the ability of higher education institutions to provide graduates with a high quality of knowledge, skills and abilities. The assessment of universities is based on the analysis of statistical indicators and the results of online surveys of the following target groups: students and graduates, representatives of academic and research communities, representatives of employers. In 2018, 30,000 respondents took part in the surveys. Statistical information used to prepare the ranking included the data of university polls, scientometric indicators and information from open sources.
