Logo Young University 2022 - TOP 90

University of Insubria is among the top 90 young universities in the world: it is 82nd in The Young University Ranking 2022, which examined 790 universities founded less than 50 years ago, and sixth among Italian universities. In 2021 Insubria was in 119th place out of 475; now the scores have improved in almost all areas, especially for the impact of scientific citations, where we go from 74.9 points in 2021 to 90.7 today: 37th position in the ranking.
"A clear growth that confirms the quality choices of our university, pursued even in the midst of the pandemic - comments Rector Angelo Tagliabue - and sheds light on the internationalisation process that is among the primary objectives of the Strategic Plan. I am particularly proud of the impact of our scientific publications: we are 37th among young universities and 128th in the global ranking. This means that the contributions made by our professors, and therefore the results of Insubria studies, have a voice in the international scientific community, that they can be compared and make a significant contribution to knowledge.
The top three positions in The Young University Ranking 2022 are held respectively by Paris Sciences et Lettres - PSL Research University Paris, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
The Young University Ranking is one of the international rankings compiled by the British magazine Times Higher Education. The table, published on 15th February, analyses the performances of 790 universities established less than 50 years ago and is based on the same 13 indicators as The World University Rankings, grouped into five areas with different weights: teaching, research (volume, income, reputation), citations (research influence), international openness (staff, students, research) and technology transfer.  An excellent performance was also recorded in the broader World University Rankings The Wur 2022, released last September, where Insubria was in the 401-500 group out of 1662 institutions and, above all, already stood out with 128th position overall for the scientific citation impact.
