Estonian university among 1% most cited research facilities in the world ({{commentsTotal}})

The Thomson Reuters Essential Science Indicators database places the Estonian University of Life Sciences into the top one percent most cited research facilities in the world in the field of environment and ecology. Until now, the Estonian University of Life Sciences belonged in the top one percent only in the field of plant and animal science.

According to the Rector of the university, belonging to the top one percent is a great achievement, because competition is made up of thousands of universities. "It is an acknowledgement showing that the research being done here in our small country and our small university is on par with the best universities in the world," he said.

The Estonian University of Life Sciences is located in Tartu and made up of five institutes: veterinary medicine and animal sciences, technology, agricultural and environmental sciences, forestry and rural engineering, and economics and social sciences.
