The “Top 60 Non-Profit Research Institutions and Government Agencies” list is a new ranking launched by the NAI as a complement to the “Top 100 Worldwide Universities” list, published annually since 2013. According to the NAI, it has been created to highlight the role non-profit research institutions and government agencies play in advancing innovation around the world and driving the global economy.

Out of the 60 institutions featured on the list, only five other EU institutions were recognized for their patent activity. “We are honoured to be included among the top non-profit research institutions in the world and in Europe. It reflects the hard work and dedication of our researchers and solidifies LIST's position as a key player in the European research landscape," concluded Fransaer.
