Overall, the top ranks of The World's Most Innovative Universities remain largely unchanged, with nine of last year's 10 highest-ranked universities remaining in the top 10 .As a result, the Reuters ranking shows significant declines in rank for leading Japanese universities, including the University of Tokyo (down five spots to No. 21), Osaka University (down 13 to No. 24), and Keio University (down 25 to No. 78).Japan had nine universities on the list in 2016, but only has eight this year; six of those eight universities saw their rank fall from 2016, and one was unchanged. The two Chinese universities returning to the list this year both made significant gains (Tsinghua University climbed 15 spots to No. 51, and Peking University climbed 10 spots to No. 60); the third, Zhejiang University, appears on the list for the first time at No. 100 .As a result, four of those constituent universities – the University of Florida (No. 66), University College London (No. 67), Florida State University (No. 76) and Arizona State University (No. 85) – made the top 100 for the first time.
