The Reuters list for top 100 World’s Most Innovative Universities of 2018 which was released by the news agency earlier today has no Indian varsity on it. The Reuters’ ranking recognises universities from across the world for their work in inventing new technologies, advance science and power new markets and industries. While no Indian was able to make it to the list, 23 Asian universities find a mention on the list. Among the others, 48 universities are from North America, 2 from the Middle East and 27 from Europe. The top 100 has no mention of universities from South America, Africa and the Oceania countries that include Australasia, Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia.

Ever since 2015 when Reuters began to roll out the list, there has been no mention of any Indian university in the list. However, earlier this year, India’s Indian Institutes of Technology made it to the Asia Pacific’s Most Innovative Universities, 2018. While no one specific campus was named in the list, Reuters believed that it was not possible to identify which constituent university was responsible for what research, so, as a result, they ranked the entire system at #71.

Continuing its winning spree, California’s Stanford University for its fourth running year holds the top slot in the list. The second and third spots have been held by USA’s Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University respectively.
