Map: Research around the world

The U of M is dedicated to broadening our understanding of the world as well as discovering solutions to its greatest challenges. The U is the ninth most active public research university in the United States, with $849 million in annual research expenditures, and our renowned researchers are not only conducting their work in the U.S. but across the globe as well. The map below shows just how much of the world they covered in 2013—84 nations (not including the U.S.) on all seven continents.

  1. This statement, “The U is the ninth most active public research university in the United States.” surprised me. It is an awfully big claim. I’m curious. Is there a non UofM source for this information and what was the criteria? I’d hate to repeat this and get nailed by someone with more accurate information. The link on the page directed me to a U of M info page.

  2. You might also note that a collaborative team of three faculty from around the U (Carlson, College, and CFANS) are conducting research for NASA on the International Space Station. Not sure where to put that on this map!
