Impact Rankings 2020: life below water

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 14 – life below water measures universities’ research on life below water and their education on and support for aquatic ecosystems.

The list includes 242 universities from 58 countries.
