Belgian researchers of the Universities of Brussels (ULB, VUB), Mons (UMons), and Louvain (UCLouvain, KU Leuven) just published in the journal Nature a study dedicated to the decline in European bumblebee populations in the 21st century.
- UMONS is ranked 269th in the world for the research criterion and 3rd in the world for Francophone Belgian universities (out of 1,300 evaluated institutions).
- “Connect With Wallonia - Come 2 Wallonia” will receive €4.5 million in funding to make the two universities more attractive to internationally mobile researchers.
- This year, the University of Mons has once again distinguished itself in the Shanghai World University Ranking by subject/field. This ranking was published in May 2021.
- A list ranking the world's most cited and most influential scientists has just been published by researchers at Stanford University (USA). This list includes 15 researchers from our university, which confirms the quality of the scientific research carried out at UMONS.
- The University of Mons' efforts in the fight against the pandemic are not limited to this screening platform. Other initiatives are currently being carried out by UMONS researchers to better understand the pandemic and its physiological and psychological impacts.
- UMONS ranks particularly well in the fields of Physics (201-300), Chemistry (301-400), and Materials Science and Engineering (201-300). It is one of the “World’s Top Universities”, ranking between 901st and 1000th place. In physics, it is the first Belgian university for the “Citation Impact” (IC) indicator and the third Belgian university, behind UCLouvain and ULB, for international publications (CNCI). In chemistry, UMONS is also the first Belgian university for the international publications (CNCI) and the “Citation Impact” (IC) indicators. Finally, in materials science, it is the second Belgian university for the “Citation Impact” (IC) indicator.
