In late January, the University of Pennsylvania published their annual Global Go To Think Tank Index Report. 8,162 think tanks were compared and ranked in different categories.

We are most proud to announce that the Austrian Economics Center has been ranked as the “Top (Non-US) Think Tank” from Austria, and again as one of the biggest organizations in Europe, coming in at number 118. We are also ranked in the categories “Best Advocacy Campain” (75), “Best Institutional Collaboration” (67), and “Best New Idea” (62) as well as “Top International Development Policy Think Tank” (95).

Perhaps the result we are happiest about is the 21st place in the world in the category “Best Independent Think Tank,” a crucial requirement for a think tank doing objective and reliable work.

We will try to improve our ranking once again in 2019, but the 2018 report shows that free-market and classical liberal ideas are continually on the rise. The success we at the AEC can report would not be possible without your help. Thanks for your support!
