Report on the survey “COVID-19 – Challenges and good practices at UNICA member universities”
02 June 2020
The survey was launched on 2 April 2020 and was open to all UNICA members with the aim to gather information on the main challenges that universities are facing due to the COVID19 outbreak, but also to collect good practices and recommendations regarding didactics, research,
and mobility, which could be shared within the Network and voiced to the European Commission and other HE stakeholders.
The responses to the survey were collected between 2 April and 4 May 2020, and 36 out of 53 UNICA member universities from 28 countries participated in the survey (response rate: 70%).
The survey was sent to Rectors, Vice-Rectors International, IROs and UNICA Contact Persons. 69% of the responses to the survey were submitted by Heads (47%) or other officers of the International Relations Offices, Student Mobility Units, study exchange coordinators and Erasmus
institutional coordinators. 25% of the respondents hold senior positions at central institutional level (e.g. Vice-Rector, Rector’s deputy).
