ITC rates high in ARWU Shanghai Ranking

We’re of course very pleased that
the Shanghai Ranking now has… disciplinary sub-rankings and this is
the first time we see the results of ITC. It’s more specifically interesting
for ITC because before we joined… the University of Twente we were
never on these world rankings. This is the first time we can see
the impact of ITC… in scientific world-rankings. Specifically for remote sensing
and geography. And yes, we’re doing very well. We’re pleased with it, but for us
it’s a means. It’s not a goal. Because we aim for societal impact,
specifically in the global south. So this demonstrates that we
have scientific excellence… but for us it’s a means to have
more impact in the global south.
