The Trends IV report provides up-to-date information on higher education developments in Europe until 2005. The first findings of the project were discussed at the 3rd EUA Convention of European Higher Education Institutions in Glasgow (31 March to 2 April 2005), while the final report was presented to European Ministers of Education at their Ministerial Conference in Bergen (19-20 May 2005).

Linked to the Trends IV project, co-author Sybille Reichert prepared a report for EUA entitled Research Strategy Development and Management at European Universities (2006), which confirms the Trends IV findings that few institutions have developed institutional research strategies. The report focuses specifically on the internal and external issues which drive the development of strategies regarding issues such as promoting excellence, building partnerships with industry, recruiting top scientists and the scope and quality of research training.
Trends III: Progress towards the European Higher Education Area (2003)
The Trends III report (2003), produced for the Graz Convention and Berlin Ministerial Conference, introduced the perspective of over 800 higher education institutions into the Bologna debates. This was achieved by gathering information through a questionnaire covering all aspects of the Bologna Process. The analysis of responses challenged many pre-conceived ideas about the progress of European higher education reform, and raised a number of questions and challenges of institutional relevance that merit further exploration.
