U Multirank recognises Sciences Po's strong performance for research and international orientation
- U-Multirank 2016
U Multirank has just released its university rankings for 2016. Sciences Po has obtained excellent scores for its international orientation and research. U Multirank was launched in 2014 by the European Commission as a means to compare universities based on a number of different criteria, making it an interesting alternative to the most well-known rankings.
As far as research is concerned, U Multirank 2016 emphasises the international dimension of our research and notes that nearly 45 percent of our publications are the product of collaboration with researchers from partner universities. Jointly supervised PhDs, which are also frequent, contribute to the international nature of doctoral programmes at Sciences Po.
Moreover, the U Multirank results underscore the influence and quality of research conducted at Sciences Po. The work of our researchers is widely cited in the scientific literature (highest score for the citation rate of their publications). As a further indication of the quality of our research, U Multirank places Sciences Po in the top category of institutions in terms of the ability of our academics to win prestigious grants (European Research Council, National Research Agency, etc.).
