Impact Rankings 2020: partnerships for the goals

The Times Higher Education Impact Rankings are the only global performance tables that assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We use carefully calibrated indicators to provide comprehensive and balanced comparisons across three broad areas: research, outreach and stewardship.

This table on SDG 17 – partnerships for the goals looks at the broader ways in which universities support the SDGs through collaboration with other countries, the promotion of best practices and the publication of data.

The list includes 806 universities from 86 countries.
