The training will focus on the usage of the data provided by the European Higher Education Sector Observatory (EHESO) to identify institutions with similar profile as the focal one, and on which data and indicators can be used for comparing them.



Updated ETER Country Reports

ETER Country Reports describe the structure of the respective national higher education system. 33 reports have been updated with data for the period 2011-2020 and a new section on academic personnel.

How to use ETER to identify similar institutions

ETER now provides a simple tool to identify a group of similar HEIs based on a few basic indicators. The classification indicators can be selected in the variables tab in the ETER database under the tab indicators.                                                   



A data descriptor paper on the European Tertiary Education Register, the reference dataset on European Higher Education Institutions, has been published.
