Mission: The University of Rijeka has built its mission upon the tasks defined by the Act on Scientific Activity and Higher Education. The University conducts scientific, artistic, and developmental research, with particular emphasis on programs of strategic interest for the Republic of Croatia, on artistic production, and on specialized skills, as well as on relevant undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate programs. In accomplishing our tasks, we are especially devoted to the sustainable development of our community. The University unified its constituencies – with particular emphasis on faculties, academies, and scientific departments – into a coherent whole, and assures their integration. We make strategic and developmental decisions about academic concerns and scientific research, oversee financial conduct and legal questions, manage investments and developmental plans and, finally, promote cooperation with external partners in scientific activities and higher education. The University ensures internal and international mobility programs for its student body and its teaching staff alike, rationally uses human and material resources and develops multi-disciplinary studies. We continuously attend to the quality and international relevance of our teaching, scientific, artistic, and professional work. The University is developing a unified info system and a library database.
Vision: The University of Rijeka will be a research-oriented university whose scientific profile will attest to its commitment to sustainable development. It will conduct excellent and efficient education based on clearly defined outcomes and the ideal of lifelong learning. By actively collaborating with the economy, engaging in partnerships with the local community, joining European higher education networks, and maintaining the highest possible standard of orderliness and responsibility, the University of Rijeka will prove its public engagement and contribute to the global journey toward a knowledge society. The University of Rijeka will be a dynamic university supportive of mobility and individual academic careers, one that enables each member of its community (teachers, assistants, administrators, and students alike) to express their talents and entrepreneurial potential.
The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.
The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.
We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal.
