### Pavia at the top of the Italian rankings for research in mathematics

The results of the **Research Quality Assessment for the years 2011-2014** (VQR 2011-2014), published by ANVUR (the Italian National Agency for the Evaluation of Universities and Research) on 21st February 2017, **rank Pavia in third place for research in mathematics**, behind only the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa and the SISSA of Trieste. **Pavia has ranked first** among all universities, of any size, that offer “laurea triennale” (B.Sc.) or “laurea magistrale” (M.Sc.) degrees in mathematics* (* The “laurea magistrale” (B.Sc.) degree is offered by SISSA only in collaboration with the University of Trieste.); these are outlined in yellow in the table below, which reproduces the ANVUR ranking.

The **image** shows a part of **Table 3.2 of the ANVUR reportfor Area 01 (mathematics and computer science)**. Only data on mathematics have been retained; these have been ordered by decreasing normalised mean score. The names of universities offering “laurea triennale” (B.Sc.) or “laurea magistrale” (M.Sc.) degrees in mathematics are outlined in yellow and the column of normalised mean scores is outlined in orange.
