Ranking of Universities ARES-2018 

ARES is a unique ranking of world universities as it automatically rates the educational, scientific and innovation activities of universities. The data are collected and processed using the advanced IT technologies such as WEB crawler, parsing, big data, etc.. It allows ARES to receive large volumes of data, and process them without any human intervention. This is the reason why leading ranking agencies take into consideration the ARES results. ARES has two processing centers: one in Europe (ARES processing, Milano, Italy)  and one is in the US (Melo Processing Center, Alexandria, Virginia). The ranking strictly follows the EC standards applied to high educational institutions.European Scientific-Industrial Chamber may offer a variety of workday classes to its members that are relevant to the scientific and industrial fields.

Ranking of World Research Institutions WRIR-2018

Ranking of world research institutions WRIR is one of the most

 Top 100 world universities

In 2018, ARES conducted a survey on leading world universities and identified 100 universities that showed the best results in education, research and socio/economic impact. The Harvard University is the world leader in ARES-2018. The University of Oxford came second as the Harvard University demonstrates stronger innovative infrastructure. The Imperial College London shows very good potential for breakthrough research and fundamental teaching.  The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich takes place 18 in the ARES ranking.  John Hopkins follows the  Swiss Institute of Technology.  The University of Munich showed excellent results as a multidisciplinary educational and research university. The Karolinska Institute is a medical university.  It is one of the leaders in Europe in biomedical education and science.  It occupies 47th place in the ranking. It should be more active in the dissemination of its scientific results.  Only one Russian University entered the ranking- it is Moscow state university.  This is due to the fact that a number of  Russian universities do not carry first-class research due to the limited funding available. 2 Chinese universities appeared in ARES. They show excellent results at the world level. Unfortunately, a number of Chinese universities do not show a solid innovative infrastructure needed for the development of breakthrough technologies.

Ranking of  High Educational Institutions- ARES
The University Ranking conducted by the European Scientific Industrial Chamber has been done to evaluate the university performance over its teaching and research applying  Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG) aiming at the common understanding of quality assurance across borders and among all stakeholders. These standards play an important role in the development of national and institutional quality assurance systems across the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), cross‐border cooperation and provision of quality assurance. (more…)
