Lobachevsky University listed in the Round University Ranking (RUR)
Lobachevsky University has been for the first time listed among the top 450 world universities in the Round University Ranking (RUR) in the area of Humanities (its current position is 435). It has also improved its standing in the area of Social Sciences (rising from position 375 a year ago to its current position 314). In the framework of the 2018 ranking study, the performance of universities was measured by 20 indicators across key university missions: teaching, research, international diversity and financial sustainability. Each university in the ranking receives its unique score with an accuracy of 3 decimal places and a respective position.
According to UNN Rector, Professor Evgeny Chuprunov, this assessment confirms Lobachevsky University’s high status as one of the leaders in the field of research on topical scientific issues. “Lobachevsky University deservedly has a reputation as one of the world’s leading research centers. It works at the forefront of science, using the most modern equipment and attracting world-famous scientists. This was made possible, among other things, thanks to the implementation of the Russian Academic Excellence Project where the UNN is taking part”, said Evgeny Chuprunov.
This year, 783 universities from 74 countries took part in the ranking. Since the first release of the ranking in 2010, more than 1000 higher education institutions representing 84 nations participated in Round University Ranking.
