U of T among top 10 research organizations cited by global innovators
The University of Toronto is among the top 10 research organizations most often cited by the world’s most innovative companies and institutions, according to Clarivate, an international data analytics company. For the first time, Clarivate has identified the 50 global research organizations whose work is most often cited by the companies on its annual Top 100 Global Innovators list.
The only Canadian institution in the 2023 version of the list, U of T ranked 10th among the research organizations most often cited by the companies and institutions at the pinnacle of the global innovation landscape — including U of T partners Fujitsu and Merck, among others. U of T’s 10th-place rank is up considerably from a similar analysis by Times Higher Education in 2017 that placed U of T 18th in the world.
“The University of Toronto’s world-leading research is driving innovations that power the global economy across a wide range of sectors, from health care to computing,” said Leah Cowen, U of T’s vice-president of research and innovation, and strategic initiatives. “Few universities in the world can rival U of T’s strength in research and innovation across such a broad spectrum of disciplines.
