The two strongest universities and the academy of sciences will create a scientific cluster to improve the delivery of higher education and contribute towards the development of science, education, and culture in society. In particular, the mission of the scientific cluster will be to raise the national and international profile of the institutions and attract extraordinarily high-quality students, scientists, professionals, and investments. They will coordinate their activities to produce world-class scientific output and promote the social, economic, cultural, and environmental well-being and prosperity of the country.

In the case of publications in the Current Contents Connect database, it is up to 70% of the total Slovak production.
