In early 2020, EUA conducted a survey on international strategic institutional partnerships and the European Universities Initiative that gathered responses from 219 higher education institutions from 34 systems across Europe.
The results provide a broad view on international collaborations as well as first insights into the perceptions and experiences of higher education institutions in the European Universities Initiative. Notably, the survey report outlines the sector’s views and demands for the future development of the initiative. It is accompanied by an EUA position that draws from the survey results, calling on the European Commission, the EU Member States in Council and the European Parliament to consider seven points for the future development of the initiative.
The survey report comes at a crucial moment as decisions are being taken on future EU funding programmes, amid the current coronavirus crisis.
