According to the latest ranking of the American-Canadian media group REUTERS, the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg occupies the 5th place in Europe and even the 1st place in Germany as the most innovative university.

The ranking of innovation of each university is determined by ten different parameters, such as the number of scientific publications, patent applications and joint developments with the industry.

Of course, the number of individual parameters does not say anything about the importance and inventive steps of the respective researches and developments. Therefore, it should also be mentioned that every university makes important contribution to research and development and creates important and useful technologies.
