„U-Multirank” is an independent ranking prepared under the Erasmus + program of the European Commission by a consortium led by the Center for Higher Education (CHE) in Germany, the Center for Higher Education Policy Studies (CHEPS) at the University of Twente and the Center for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS) ) Of Leiden University in the Netherlands. This first global multi-criteria ranking gives a multidimensional picture of the functioning of universities by assessing them in five different areas: education and learning, research, international orientation, regional commitment and knowledge transfer. U-Multirank uses 39 different indicators for this purpose, by means of which universities are assessed and compared in various areas and fields of activity, on the basis of a 5-point scale: 1 / A – very good grade; 2 / B – good grade; 3 / C – average grade; 4 / D – below average grade; 5 / E – low grade. In this way, U-Multirank gives a full picture of the strengths of each ranked university.
