ECNU ranked third among domestic peers in the number of projects approved by the State as Major Projects of Key Research Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences in Universities this year.
The university found 26 projects on a list recently released by the Ministry of Education (MOE), standing side by side with Wuhan University (26), and following Renmin University (28) and Peking University (36).
The list, determined by a panel of professionals organized by the ministry, included 355 projects that won approval this year. The list has been announced to solicit public opinions. Approval for 54 projects is still pending because leaders of these projects have yet to complete other projects on hand.
