The latest trending news through Reuters confirms the top 100 "World's Most Innovative Universities". Experts believe that the current milestone achieved by the universities listed herein solidifies the sophistication of their academic excellence and benchmarks them for other world university rankings.

We have revived 2nd customary ranking system and came up with the top 10 most innovative universities for 2016, Reuters confirmed.

Here are the top 10 universities:

1. Stanford University

2. Massachusetts Institute of technology (MIT)

3. Harvard University

4. University of Texas System

5. University of Washington System

6. KAIST

7. University of Michigan System

8. University of Pennsylvania

9. KU Leuven

10. Northwestern University

Herewith are the top 10 most innovative universities in the U.S. as per ranking by Reuters. The very core of the site's Top 100 universities target search always had to do with "keeping up with the ever-changing science and technology standards emerging among universities in the world".

The very first noted ranking made by Reuters was way back in 2015. Now, in its second turn, the site once again empties its database and rescans the milestones achieved by candidate universities in terms of science and technology innovations, inventions and global economic contributions, Fortune reported.

As much as restrictions are worth mentioning in the whole ranking system, data experts are still convinced that the ranking results have very high potentials to serve as benchmark for other world university ranking systems. The driver of Reuters' particular ranking system towards sophistication is believed to be the major 10 indicators that serve to compare the university categories with others in a very thorough procedure.

Primarily, the comparison sheet can be very flexible that it settles to a very specific category like population. So, when the population changes, the rankings automatically change too, GeekWire reported.

Without a doubt, Reuters has successfully set itself above other ranking systems as it does not mainly rely on subjective surveys, but rather focus on patent data, empirical findings and solid research paper citations.
