Nevertheless, as a university aspiring for the title of a research university, Lodz University of Technology still ranks well. Of course we have to work on accelerating the development. We've got a slightly better position compared to last year’s result in the categories of prestige, research potential or research productivity, but we have to speed up more, because it is not minor changes that we are interested in .
