KAIST ranked six in The Reuters Top 100: The World’s Most Innovative Universities 2017 for the second consecutive year, and is the top among Asian universities.


Compared with last year’s data, KAIST improved its commercial impact as well as total patents filed; the commercial impact increased from 91.2 to 91.7 while the total patents filed was boosted from 911 to 923.


Only two Asian universities placed in the top 20, including KAIST. As a result of continuously producing top quality innovative research, KAIST was able to keep the highest ranking outside the United States.


Since 2015, The Reuters Top 100: The World’s Most Innovative Universities evaluates and ranks the most innovative educational institutions based on ten indicators including patent volume, citations, and impact. Except for patent citation impact and percentage of patents cited, the remaining indicators are equally weighted and added up for the final score.
