University of Minho
Nowadays, the Universidade do Minho (UMinho) is clearly a Research University. This is reflected in the position it has taken in the main international rankings, particularly the Leiden Ranking,, the main ranking linked to scientific research, as it is a bibliometric ranking, but also in the major rankings of the Times Higher Education (THE)), both in the global ranking and in the THE ranking of universities under 50 years old..
The increase in the number of scientific publications is also very clear, as well as the various scientific outputs of the University of Minho, over the last few years, as well as the number of citations obtained, and of UMinho researchers that are considered highly cited researchers, and with higher number of citations and h-indexes in their scientific areas.
The University already represents about 9%, approaching 10%, of the Portuguese scientific system, which is clearly higher than the number of researchers it proportionally represents at a national level. In 2015 UMinho published 1642 articles listed in the ISI Web of Science (20% more than in 2014) and 1997 articles listed in Scopus (10% more than in 2014).
The University has been able to increasingly attract large European projects, currently having 3 European Council Advanced Research Grants – ERC AdG (one of them shared with a Dutch Institution) and currently managing 4 large projects, all with funding to UMinho greater than 2.3 million euros.
