Abstract: The purpose of this study was to delineate and identify the common criteria for higher education institution classification and evaluation as a research university, and to analyse the relationship between higher education, innovation and the country's competitiveness. Criteria to classify research universities derive from classification in the USA, China, Europe and Thailand. Criteria to evaluate research universities based on international rankings: Shanghai Jiao Tong University global ranking and Times Higher Education QS World Universities Ranking. To test the relationship with competitiveness, the global competitive index was used. The results were as follows: firstly, common criteria that have been used to classify research universities consisted of three dimensions: funding, programmes and staff. Secondly, common criteria that have been used to evaluate research universities consisted of three dimensions: publications, citations and research awards. Finally, the relationship between higher education, innovation and global competitiveness appeared to be highly interrelated. The results provide useful information to higher education policy-makers in the context of higher education management and the development of a national research university.
