He urged the community to remain committed in the pursuit of new knowledge in the fields of mathematics and statistics, chemistry, physics, environmental sciences, and marine sciences.

“Our outputs will hopefully lead to innovations that will shape and influence society, help the poor and the marginalized and improve the quality of life,” he said.

The THE WUR 2022 global rankings applied the same rigorous performance indicators as the World University Rankings, but were adjusted to suit the specific field.
