The European University has been ranked among the world's best universities in the 2022 edition of the prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings.
The THE Impact Rankings, founded in 2019, are the only global league tables that assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Sustainable Development Goals represent the plan to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, addressing the global challenges people face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is universal and calls for action by all countries – developed and developing – to ensure no one is left behind.
Every year, the Times Higher Education publishes an overall ranking of universities, as well as 17 tables showing universities’ progress towards delivering each of the SDGs.
