Reuters Top 100: The World's Most Innovative Universities - 2017

September 30, 2017View for printing

The most innovative university in the world, for the third consecutive year, is Stanford University. Located in the heart of California's Silicon Valley, Stanford has long played a key role in the development of our modern networked world: A Stanford professor designed the basic communication standard for the Internet, and university alumni founded some of the biggest tech companies in the world, including Google, Intel, Hewlett-Packard and Netflix.

The University of Washington places seventh place overall on Reuters' ranking of the World's Most Innovative Universities, but is the highest-ranked American public university on the list.

For the third-straight year, Reuters ranked the top 100 most innovative universities based on 10 different metrics, including academic papers on research, patent filings and a university's ability to transform its development and discoveries into real-world commercial impact. Reuters notes that the list "identifies and ranks the educational institutions doing the most to advance science, invent new technologies and power new markets and industries."
