The EAIE Barometer: second edition

The EAIE is currently developing the second edition of the EAIE Barometer: Internationalisation in Europe. This study, conducted in partnership with IFF Research, a leading research agency, will examine the state of higher education internationalisation in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). The second edition will build upon the results of the first edition, published in 2015, in order to detail changes and growth within the field as well as project trends in the coming years. It will address the full institutional journey of internationalisation from the goals, actions, and priorities to the progress made in pursuing them. It is an invaluable resource for practitioners and policy-makers developing and delivering internationalisation at their organisations.

Topics that will be explored: 

  • Institutional context
  • Internationalisation strategy
  • Organisation and management
  • Quality assessment of internationalisation
  • European Union (EU) and national policy
  • Challenges of internationalisation
  • Impact and future of internationalisation

The EAIE Barometer: first edition

Based on a wealth of data and information gathered in 2014, the first EAIE Barometer: Internationalisation in Europe focuses on the state of internationalisation in Europe, key developments and challenges in the field, as well as the specific skills and needs of staff involved in internationalisation. The report was informed by 2411 survey respondents from 33 countries: 2093 employees of higher education institutions and 318 from other organisations involved with international higher education.

The report provides valuable insights into developments in the field, actual practices employed by European institutions and tools required for the further professionalisation of internationalisation.
