Foundation: 1914

Mission: Goethe University and its scientists carry out a great variety of Third Mission activities. The Third Mission commitment draws on research and teaching and is stimulated in turn by non-scientific networks, acting thereby both complementary and synergistically with these two missions. The Third Mission is carried out in collaboration with concrete partners or directed toward the public. It often takes up social, technological and political issues to seek cooperative, interdisciplinary solutions. The university sets the agenda in the name of independence and freedom, and gathers ideas, knowledge and issue awareness. As Stiftungsuniversität, it also generates private funds that can be applied flexibly toward future-oriented areas of research.

Evolution of the institution

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.

Ranks by Subject area

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
