The Times Higher Education assessed more than 450 universities from 76 countries against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDG) and calibrated indicators to provide comparisons across research, outreach and stewardship. Aalto University, ranked 19th, is the second and the University of Strathclyde, ranked 50th, the third highest ranked of our Members.
Our Task Force Benchmark meanwhile met for a workshop ‘Measuring the contribution of universities of Science and Technology (S&T) to the UN SDG’ kindly hosted by Graz University of Technology aimed at raising awareness on the UN SDG amongst our Members, reflecting upon the design and process of the University Impact Rankings 2019 and considering a Member Survey on this topic in 2019.
Our Secretary General David Bohmert delivered the first key note on the contribution of universities of S&T to the UN SDG. Kristina von Oelreich (Sustainability Manager at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm) delivered the second key note on the design and process of University Impact Rankings 2019. More information on the approach of KTH on sustainability can be found here.
