    About the event

    On behalf of Times Higher Education and PCG Academia, we cordially invite you to participate in the webinar entitled: “THE Impact Rankings 2021 – Polish universities in the global context“, which will be held on May 19th, 2021 (Wednesday) between 1pm and 2:30pm.

    The Times Higher Education Impact Rankings measure global universities’ success in delivering the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. The results of this year’s edition of the ranking will be announced on April 21st at THE’s Innovation & Impact Summit.

    Methodology of THE Impacts Rankings is based on the set of carefully calibrated indicators across four broad areas: research, stewardship, outreach and teaching. In ranking calculation THE uses all 17 SDGs set in 2015 UN Resolution called the 2030 Agenda

    Universities can submit data on as many of these SDGs as they are able. Any university that provides data on SDG 17 and at least three other SDGs will be included in the overall ranking. THE publishes the overall ranking, as well as the results of each individual SDG in 17 separate tables.
