The European Social Fund (ESF) is one of the EU's Structural Funds, set up to reduce differences in prosperity and living standards across EU Member States and regions, and therefore promoting economic and social cohesion.

The ESF is devoted to promoting employment in the EU. It helps Member States make Europe's workforce and companies better equipped to face new, global challenges. In short:
  • Funding is spread across the Member States and regions, in particular those where economic development is less advanced.
  • It is a key element of the EU's 2020 strategy for Growth and Jobs targeted at improving the lives of EU citizens by giving them better skills and better job prospects.
  • Over the period 2007-2013 some €75 billion will be distributed to the EU Member States and regions to achieve its goals.

The European Social Fund (ESF) is the European Union’s main instrument for financing strategic objectives of the employment policy. For 50 years, ESF has invested in programmes dedicated to develop peoples'  abilities and employment in the EU Member States.

The ESF finances the following priorities:
  • Increasing adaptability of workers and enterprises;
  • Increasing access to employment and participation in the labour market;
  • Reinforcing social inclusion by fighting discrimination and facilitating access to the labour market for disadvantaged people;
  • Promoting partnership for reform in the fields of employment and inclusion.
At the same time, in the least prosperous regions which fall under the convergence objective, the ESF will also support:
  • investment in human capital, in particular by improving education and training systems;
  • action aimed at developing institutional capacity and the efficiency of public administrations, at national, regional and local level.

Close Higher Education Institutions

The Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) was first published in June 2003 by the Center for World-Class Universities and the Institute of Higher Education of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China, and then updated on an annual basis.

ARWU uses six objective indicators to rank world universities, including:
  • the number of alumni and staff winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals,
  • the number of highly cited researchers selected by Thomson Scientific,
  • the number of articles published in journals of Nature and Science,
  • the number of articles indexed in Science Citation Index - Expanded and Social Sciences Citation Index,
  • and per capita performance with respect to the size of an institution.
More than 1000 universities are actually ranked by ARWU every year and the best 500 are published on the web.

The QS World University Rankings is a ranking of the world’s top 500 universities by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) using a methodology that has published annually since 2004. While it has been gradually improved over time, the principles on which it was produced have not changed. So it has become a stable and consistent fixture for the fast-changing world of international education.

The QS World University Rankings is not to be confused with the THE World University Rankings. The QS rankings were originally published in collaboration with Times Higher Education, and known as the THE-QS World University Rankings. QS assumed sole publication of the existing methodology when Times Higher Education split in order to create a new ranking methodology in 2010, which became the THE World University Rankings.

Web site

The Webometrics Ranking of World Universities, also known as Ranking Web of World Universities, is ranking system for the world's universities based on a composite indicator that takes into account both the volume of the Web contents (number of web pages and files) and the visibility and impact of these web publications according to the number of external inlinks (site citations) they received.

The ranking is published by the Cybermetrics Lab, a research group of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) located in Madrid.

The aim of the Ranking is to improve the presence of the academic and research institutions on the Web and to promote the open access publication of scientific results. The ranking started in 2004 and is updated every January and July. Today it provides Web indicators for more than 20,000 Higher Education Institutions worldwide.
