University Systems Ranking: Citizens and Society in the Age of Knowledge

The University Systems Ranking is the culmination of a year-long research project in which we set out to measure and rank countries based on the ability of their tertiary education systems to help citizens and society meet the very real challenges of a 21st century knowledge economy.

The Policy Brief was written by Peer Ederer, Phillip Schuller and Stephan Willms, co-directors of the Lisbon Council’s Human Capital Center and fellows of the Lisbon Council.
