The Board and General Assembly of EURASHE decided to launch the process to review EURASHE's 2017-2020 strategy. Part of it is a strategic survey to gather the views of members and important partners. A strategic workshop will also be organised on 10 November 2016 in Brussels (Belgium), and the final strategy proposal will be debated in the General Assembly meeting of 29 March 2017 in Le Havre (France).
No parts of the survey are compulsory and it should not take more than 10-15 minutes to complete it.

The European Commission has commissioned a wide-ranging study on the cooperation between higher education institutions and public and private organisations in Europe. Part of this study relies on a survey which is set to be the most comprehensive of its kind ever undertaken in Europe. It will inform appropriate policy making aimed at improving future partnerships between higher education institutions and external organisations.
You can complete the survey online in 10 minutes until 11 November 2016 in the European language of your choice.
