On August 15th, the 2019 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) has announced via ShanghaiRanking Consultancy that University of Zagreb has been placed again among the top 500 world universities. The current ranking places the University of Zagreb in front of the University of Ljubljana, which is now in the category of the universities ranked at places in between 500-600. This is a great achievement for the University of Zagreb and is a proof that the efforts made in the last 2 years have an impact. The University of Zagreb is also very active at the European level and as such is the only Croatian University with presence in Brussels via its liaison office that is supported by EuroNavigator. The efforts with regards to the latter will be even more strengthened in the months to come as there are many activities planned to ensure visibility and presence of the University of Zagreb, which subsequently will result in better usability of the European funds and programs, but moreover, in ensuring the strategic positioning of the University and making an impact in the field of the higher education area policy making. The positioning of the University of Zagreb with regards to the relevant European policies and programs such as current Horizon Europe consultations will also be expressed through joint positioning on behalf of renowned European associations of which the University is in process of becoming a full member.
