The KTH Research Assessment Exercise (RAE2012) aims to ensure that our research remains competitive internationally, and that future research strategies maintain a global perspective.
The evaluation showed that:
- KTH has a strong impact and engagement with society and has many different ways of interacting with the society. More than half of the KTH research base was found to have an ‘outstanding impact and engagement with society’. This confirms that the research carried out at KTH continues to be taken forward effectively and to the benefit of society.
- KTH has a strong research base. Almost half of KTH research units were assessed to have a research output quality that is ‘world-leading’.
- KTH researchers have a strong tradition publishing in peer reviewed international journals and the impact of their publications is increasing. This is shown by an increase in the average field normalized citation rate (cf) which has grown from 1.18 in 2004 to 1.42 in 2010 (latest figures available).
