about eurograduate


The EUROGRADUATE Pilot Survey was launched with the intention to promote European graduate research. As the preceding feasibility study confirmed in 2016, there is a strong demand for a EU-wide graduate study. Aiming at high quality data and high comparability across the participating European countries, the project’s consortium set up the idea of a pilot survey to prepare and test-run a full roll-out in the future.

More specifically the project has the following objectives:

  1. Develop tools and processes for a centralised collection and handling of data,

  2. Assess the feasibility of, and identify methods for, sampling and contacting graduate populations in Erasmus+ countries,

  3. Consult experts and relevant authorities on the content of survey questionnaires, sampling and contacting approaches and coordination with existing national-level graduate surveys,

  4. Test-run the data collection tools in a minimum of six European countries,

  5. Assess the willingness of Erasmus+ countries to take part in a full roll-out of a European graduate survey,

  6. Develop recommendations and proposals for the implementation of a full roll-out of a European graduate survey.
