What is WURI

World's Universities with Real Impact (WURI), a new ranking system established by the Organizing Committee of the Hanseatic League of Universities (HLU). WURI evaluates the university’s real contributions to the society, highlighting creative and innovative approaches of universities' research and educational programs based on the below six categories:

Industrial Applications, rather than the traditional ways of counting research papers and lecture-type teaching;

Value-Creating startups and entrepreneurship, rather than a traditional focus on the number of jobs filled;

Social Responsibility, Ethics, and Integrity, rather than a focus on knowledge and skills just for material success;

Student Mobility and Openness for exchange and collaboration between schools and across national borders, rather than an independent yet closed system;

Crisis Management in the midst of climate change, COVID-19 pandemic, and other global and local crisis;

Progress during the Fourth Industrial Revolution through digital technology, artificial intelligence, big data, cloud services, blockchain, and so on.
