Every year, Voronezh State University holds leading positions in the ranking. This time it considerably improved its results: it went up 58 positions among international universities and took 183rd place. The university has also improved its position among Russian universities – it moved up 3 positions and took 5th place.

The ranking is aimed at raising awareness about environmental issues among the academic community.
