EUA launches TRENDS 2018 survey for European universities (deadline: 12 May 2017)

European University Association (EUA) invites all European universities and higher education institutions to participate in the TRENDS 2018 survey. The eighth in the series, this EUA flagship initiative aims to map developments in Europe’s changing higher education landscape. 

EUA has been conducting the TRENDS series and publishing the resulting reports since 1999, with a view to feed an institutional perspective into European higher education policy discussions, and improve the knowledge base on, and support for institutional developments within European universities. So far, TRENDS has been the only report that has consistently presented comparative data on developments in European higher education institutions. Over time, EUA’s TRENDS reports have become milestone references for policy makers and the higher education community

TRENDS 2018 will focus on learning and teaching (L&T) developments in European higher education institutions. The survey will explore issues such as institutional strategies and policies, L&T practices, and staff development and teaching enhancement, whilst ensuring sufficient continuity with the previous TRENDS 2015 report to allow for a consistent analysis of key European Higher Education Area developments. 

The results of the survey will feed into the TRENDS 2018 report, which EUA will submit to the 2018 Bologna Ministerial Conference (May 2018, Paris, France), and use in various policy and practice contexts. 


Participate in TRENDS 2018 Survey!

All interested institutions are encouraged to respond to the survey as data and analysis will be crucial for the debate on the future development of learning and teaching. There should be only one response per institution, for which a senior representative/academic leader should take responsibility. The deadline is 12 May 2017.

To respond to the survey, please fill out the online questionnaire. For further information, please contact
