New EUA report | Rankings in Institutional Strategies and Processes: Impact or Illusion?
The European University Association (EUA) has published a new report entitled “Rankings in Institutional Strategies and Processes (RISP): Impact or Illusion?”

The publication published on 6th November and presented at an event in Brussels, is the outcome of a 2.5 year EUA-led project which has carried out the first pan-European study of the impact and influence of rankings on European higher education institutions.

The study consisted of an online survey, followed by a series of site visits to institutions and a roundtable with senior university managers and stakeholders, which confirmed that rankings have an impact on institutions and their activities albeit in a number of different ways. The RISP project sought to provide some guidance for universities on how they can constructively use rankings to promote institutional development.
