Survey on research capacity in Western Balkans

20 April 2017

Representatives from institutions in the Western Balkans are invited to complete a short questionnaire on local research capacity, which is part of a study funded by the European Commission through the SPHERE project (Support and Promotion for Higher Education Reform Experts).

sphereEUA is a part of the SPHERE consortium together with the University of Barcelona, the project coordinator. 

The objective of the study is to gather information and opinions from higher education and research institutions in the Western Balkans in order to better support research capacity in the region. The study is composed of three separate surveys, taking about five to fifteen minutes each to complete, and targets different institutional stakeholders.

Questionnaire 1 is addressed to the central leadership of institutions, such as rectors or one of their staff members. Management of the individual research entities at the institution, such as faculties, departments and institutes are invited to answer questionnaire 2. Questionnaire 3 targets researchers from different parts of the institution.

Those interested are invited to participate as well as share the invitation with colleagues. The deadline for responses has been extended to 5 May 2017.
