UW ranks 6th in national research ranking
MADISON, Wis. — The National Science Foundation released its 2016 Higher Research and Development Survey data, showing that the University of Wisconsin-Madison retained sixth place in the national research rankings.
Data on UW-Madison’s 2016 expenditures for research shows the university with nearly $1.16 billion in annual expenditures for research across all fields, about half of which comes from federal awards.
Federal expenditures represent a 6.3 percent increase from the previous fiscal year, or totaling nearly $34 million in new additional spending.
“The increase in expenditures and maintaining our ranking is good news for UW-Madison, showing that the needle is moving in the right direction after a four-year decline in research expenditures,” said Marsha Mailick, UW-Madison vice chancellor for research and graduate education.
