Plans to roll out a new system of rankings for Europe’s universities to encourage international comparison will be outlined next week at a conference in Dublin. The system, called U-Multirank, has been developed with funding from the European Union. It aims to correct a perceived bias towards research performance in other international rankings, and so present a more balanced picture of university activities.
