The Harokopio University of Athens achieved three distinct distinctions in the annual World University Rankings 2022, in which it participated for the first time, in the context of the implementation of its strategic goals.

Initially, Harokopio University was ranked first, winning the title of the best University in Greece, among the thirteen (13) Greek Institutions that participated in the annual ranking.

In addition, it won two more outstanding awards. It was placed in the 351-400 series among the 1662 Universities in total, while at the same time it gathered the high percentage of 96.3%, in terms of heteroreferences in scientific / research work, occupying the 64th place in the world ranking, as a reflection of the quality of its research work. It is worth noting that for this year's World University Rankings 2022, more than 108 million citations were analyzed in more than 14.4 million research publications and included responses to surveys by nearly 22,000 scholars worldwide.

These outstanding achievements were reflected in the beginning of September 2021, by the magazine "Times Higher Education", in the annual World University Rankings for 2022, which is considered one of the most valid in the world in evaluating the performance of top Institutions around the world.

We are particularly pleased and proud of the fact that Harokopio University has managed to stand out among leading Institutions from 99 countries worldwide, which "competed" in evaluating their performance in areas such as teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international perspectives.

The Rector's Office of Harokopio University congratulates all the members of the Academic Community, teachers, students and administrative staff for the excellent result, which was a product of collective work, dedication and determination in particularly difficult conditions, not only due to the effects of the financial crisis, but and the negative consequences of the pandemic.
