The European Tertiary Education Register (ETER) data for 2020 are now available online. With this release, ETER provides longitudinal data for the whole period 2011-2020; this allows examining changes over time in European higher education.
The new release includes several additional data and indicators to further improve the ETER dataset:
- Academic personnel by level of seniority (broken down by gender) is now included for 19 countries (see figure below as an example)
- European Universities initiative alliances membership (Alliance name, acronym and OrgReg ID)
- EU Framework Programmes project data (including project participation and coordination by Fields of Education and Training and by subprogramme as well as industrial collaboration in EU FP and Researchers’ mobility and training cooperation supported by the EU FP)
- The Global World Higher Education Database (WHED) IDs, the only unique identifiers available for HEIs at the global level
