UC enters Reuters’ top 100 most innovative universities

List includes University of Cincinnati among world’s biggest contributors to scientific advancement, technology development

Reuters now counts the University of Cincinnati among the 100 most innovative institutions of higher learning in the world.

UC entered Reuters’ 2018 rankings at No. 80, its first appearance since the news organization began the list in 2015. According to Reuters, "the list identifies and ranks the educational institutions doing the most to advance science, invent new technologies and power new markets and industries.”

UC is one of 46 American institutions named on the list, and is ranked ahead of the State University of New York System, the University of Virginia, the University of Iowa, the University of Miami and Arizona State University.

The debut of UC on Reuters’ top 100 most innovative universities coincides with the launch of the university’s bicentennial celebration and comes in the same year as the launch of Next Lives Here, the university’s strategic direction. Announced in February by UC President Neville Pinto, Next Lives Here names innovation as one of three key platforms necessary to advance the university’s vision of “leading public universities into a new era of innovation and impact.”

Reuters’ inclusion of UC on its list of top innovation universities comes within a week of the university’s celebration of the grand opening of the 1819 Innovation Hub, UC’s state-of-the-art destination for thinking, making, doing, discovery and delivery.

UC team uses design to combat opioid crisis

Tue, January 22, 2019

Like many cities across the country, Cincinnati has been rocked by the opioid epidemic, with an ever-fluctuating range of 50 to 80 overdoses per week across the Tristate. Many of those victims are revived by the overdose reversal medication, naloxone, which has proven to be a crucial lifesaving tool during this crisis. Claudia Rebola, graduate studies coordinator in UC’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP), designed a device to make naloxone more accessible to those in need, bringing a model she helped create first in Providence, Rhode Island, to spaces in Cincinnati that are most at risk.
