The survey is now closed. The results of the survey will be posted on this webpage shortly. Thank you for your contributions!

Máire Geoghegan-QuinnI would be honoured if your organisation could respond to this survey.

The objective is to identify the state of play of the implementation of ERA and the areas where progress is both possible and necessary. It is important that all organisations involved in Research and Innovation contribute to the survey to ensure that the results accurately reflect the situation on the ground in each country.

Research organisations and research funders are crucial for the daily implementation of the European Research Area (ERA).

Through this survey

The European Commission seeks to identify existing practices, needs and barriers where organisations believe further action is needed in order to complete a single market for researchers, knowledge and technology.

The results will be aggregated at national level to reflect the overall state of play in each country. Data collected will not, in any circumstances, be used to report back at organisational level.

The questionnaire addresses different aspects of ERA, requiring the contribution of different departments or units within your organisation (e.g. Human Resources and Information Technology departments). Therefore, it is advisable to download and distribute the questionnaire prior to filling it in online.

The European Commission would like to thank your organisation in advance for participating in the survey. It is an essential action to better understand the state of play concerning the ERA priorities.
