European Tertiary Education Register helps to identify research cooperation opportunities

The European Commission has published the second edition of the European Tertiary Education Register (ETER). The register contains information on 2,293 European higher education institutions in 31 European countries, including data such as university size, information about research and funding, subject areas and degree levels, as well as number and gender of students and staff. Using information from national statistical authorities, ETER complements other data on university performance, such as U-Multirank, and system-level higher education statistics (UNESCO-UIS/OECD/Eurostat).

The data provided is comparable and can therefore be used as a strategy tool for policy-makers as well as a tool for researchers and higher education institutions for identifying opportunities for research collaborations or specialisation.

ETER is a project supported by the European Union's Erasmus+ programme. The project partners are USI – Università della Svizzera Italiana, Center for Organizational Research, Lugano; Joanneum Researdh, Policies – Centre for Economic and Innovation Research, Graz; NIFU – Nordic Institute for Studies in Innovation, Research and Education, Oslo; University of Rome La Sapienza, Department of Computer, Control and Management Engineering Antonio Ruberti, Rome.
