The first U-Multirank edition in 2014 will cover a minimum of 500 higher education institutions from around the world. The U-Multirank project announced on its website that it has reached this goal and that its counter stood at 540. The project – led by the german Centre for Higher Education and the Dutch Centre for Higher Education Policy Studies – will continue to accept registration forms, so higher education institutions interested in participating can still register their interest now. U-Multirank asserts considerable numbers among the 540 are research-intensive universities, gainsaying earlier criticisms by universities from LERU: the League of European Research Universities, and in particular from British voice. Britain is home to two current global rankings: Times Higher and QS.
