Mapping of European transnational collaborative partnerships in higher education

Report on the results of the survey mapping transnational collaborative partnerships of European Higher Education Institutions.


As part of the work to conceptualise and develop the new initiative on European Universities, the Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture (DG EAC) and the Directorate-General Joint Research Centre (DG JRC) carried out a survey in order to map existing transnational partnerships involving European Higher Education Institutions (HEIs).

The objective of this survey was to take an in-depth look at the current state of cross-border cooperation in Higher Education in order to 1) identify drivers, objectives and facilitators, as well as 2) barriers and challenges in achieving a stronger and better collaboration.

This report presents and analyses the responses of the collaborative partnerships alongside insights from the relevant literature.
