Shanghai Ranking 2009
LMU president Professor Bernd Huber sees this result above all as incentive to boost LMU’s international position even further: “This result once again reveals LMU's unchallenged position in Germany, but from an international vantage, there is still room for improvement.” He also says one must always consider the method of ranking. Overall, the Shanghai ranking is independent and long-term. “In the long run, however, we need a ranking system that applies to European scientific standards. As Chairman of the League of European Research Universities, I shall be campaigning for such a system,” emphasizes Huber.
Jiao-Tong-University has maintained its ranking since 2003. The evaluation takes into account publications in international scientific journals (40 percent), alumni and staff winning Nobel prizes (30 percent), most highly-cited researchers (20 percent) and the per capita research achievements with respect to the size of the institution (10 percent).
