KAIST was ranked the world’s 10th most innovative university in new rankings of the most innovative universities released by Reuters.
KAIST is the only non-U.S school to place in the top 10 list, which was dominated by U.S. universities in the first nine positions.
Reuters News relied on data compiled by its sister company, Thompson Reuters Intellectual Property & Science, to create the inaugural Top 100 Most innovative Universities rankings. The list is based on ten criteria: patent volume, patent success, global patents, patent citations, patent citation impact, percent of patents cited, patent to article citation impact, industry article citation impact, percent of industry collaborative articles, and total number of science papers.
Reuters noted that the number of patents filed by KAIST totaled 884 cases for the last five years (2008-2013) and its patent approval rate stood at 84.3%, which was an important contributor to KAIST’s total score of 1,515, Stanford (1,685), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1,671), Harvard (1,609), University of Washington (1,576), and University of Michigan System (1,562) took the top five positions, in order.
Half of Reuters’ Top 100 Innovative Universities are located in Canada, Europe or Asia. A total of eight Korean universities made the list of 100 including POSTECH (12th) , Seoul National University ( 31st), Yonsei University (36th), Sungkyunkwan University (66th), Korea University (84th), and Gwangju Institute of Science & Technology (88th).
