Eight of the top ten most innovative universities in Europe are EIT Community partners

Half of the 100 most innovative are EIT Community partners, including the top three: KU Leuven, Imperial College London and the University of Cambridge.

According to Reuters, the top ten most innovative universities in Europe are:

  1. KU Leuven
  2. Imperial College London
  3. University of Cambridge
  4. Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne
  5. University of Erlangen Nuremberg
  6. Technical University of Munich
  7. University of Manchester
  8. University of Munich
  9. Technical University of Denmark
  10. Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich

Of the 100 universities in the list, 51 universities are EIT Community partners.

Reuters compiled the list of Europe’s most innovative universities by gathering a list of institutes that filed at least fifty patents with the World Intellectual Property Organization between 2011 and 2016 and afterwards evaluating these institutions on ten different metrics, focusing on academic papers and patent filings.

For the third year in a row KU Leuven is the most innovative university of Europe. The Belgian university is the lead of the Western innovation hub of EIT Raw Materials, a core partner in the Belgium-Netherlands innovation hub of EIT Health and a core partner in the Benelux innovation hub of EIT InnoEnergy.

How is the EIT involved with universities?

The EIT's Innovation Communities offer EIT-label degree programmes through their partnerships with major universities. These programmes are held at Master and PhD levels. 

The EIT’s Innovation Communities are partnerships that bring together businesses, research centres and universities; their partners include some of the biggest names in the world in these three areas. They allow:

  • innovative products and services to be developed in every area imaginable, including climate change, healthy living and active ageing

  • a new generation of entrepreneurs to be trained
