EAIE Barometer

The EAIE Barometer is the only study to map the state of internationalisation in Europe, as viewed by practitioners directly involved in the internationalisation of their institutions.

Status: Recurring
Period: Spring 2017–Autumn 2018

The EAIE Barometer 2nd edition

The EAIE is developing the second edition of the EAIE Barometer: internationalisation in Europe. This research study aims to map and understand internationalisation of higher education in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). It will cover emerging trends and measure changes in approach over time on a European and national level.

With this study we will provide a valuable resource for practitioners and policy-makers developing and delivering internationalisation at their organisations. It will offer respondents the opportunity to benchmark themselves against others in Europe and their country to support their work in advancing internationalisation.

The EAIE Barometer 1st edition

Published in 2015, the first EAIE Barometer: Internationalisation in Europe report reveals the state of internationalisation in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) from the perspective of practitioners.  In total, 2411 individual internationalisation practitioners from 33 countries took part in the survey. The final report analyses aggregate European level and the national level:

  • Reasons for internationalising
  • Organisational and strategic planning
  • Internationalisation activities
  • The impact of institutional, national and European level policies
  • Knowledge and skill needs of practitioners

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