Bremen's Research Increasingly Visible Internationally
The University of Bremen was able to increase its score in all categories – teaching, research environment and quality, internationalization, and industry. Strong growth can be seen in the research quality category: The score increased from 59 to 68.8 out of 100, showing that the university's research performance is increasingly gaining recognition and being noticed worldwide. In addition to strength, excellence, and influence of research, the category also bundles the so-called "citation impact," which measures the influence of academic publications based on the number of times they are cited in other academic papers.
Fourth Place among the Ten YUFE Universities
Of the ten universities that have joined forces in the European YUFE Alliance since 2019, five universities managed to improve their rankings in this year's THE ranking: Maastricht University, University of Bremen, Carlos III University of Madrid, University of Eastern Finland, and Nicolaus Copernicus University of Toruń. Overall, the YUFE universities scored an average total score of 43.3. The University of Bremen is above this average with 51.3 points, ranking 4th among the YUFE universities.
The evaluation methodology was revised in comparison to previous years for the 20th edition of the THE ranking. Now, 18 different criteria are taken into account, instead of the previous 13. Teaching, research environment, and research quality each contribute about one-third to the assessment. The aspects of industry and internationality contribute about eleven percent to the overall ranking. Based on these criteria, an overall score is determined for each university, which in turn establishes the ranking.
