Introduction

This online survey is conducted by the EU-funded Erasmus+ project called UniWelIS (Supporting internationalisation of higher education through professionalising services for mobile academic staff). Coordinated by the Slovak Academic Information Agency, UniWelIS brings together the Academic Cooperation Association, the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange, the University of Nis, Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” and Comenius University in Bratislava.

This survey aims to collect evidence on mobility experiences and support needs of international researchers, lecturers and PhD students in Central Eastern and South Eastern Europe. The results of this study will prepare the design of practical tools supporting the successful integration of international academics in these countries. They will be beneficial for future mobile academics and will help improve academic staff mobility opportunities and services in the target region.

The survey targets the following groups of respondents:
  • Target group 1: International PhD researchers/students who currently work or study at a higher education institution in Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia or Slovakia to earn a PhD degree, or who studied or worked there for the same purpose in the past five years
  • Target group 2: International researchers, lecturers and PhD students who are currently on a three-month or longer academic visit to a higher education institution in Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia or Slovakia or who were on such a visit in the past five years
  • Target group 3: International researchers and lecturers who are currently employed by a higher education institution in Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia or Slovakia on a permanent or temporary (three-month or longer) contract or who had such an employment contract with an institution from this region in the past five years.
The questionnaire consists of three parts:
  • Part 1: Mobility experience
  • Part 2: Support services and needs
  • Part 3: Profile and contact
It takes approx. 30 minutes to complete the questionnaire. Your feedback is of utmost importance for helping to remove the existing barriers to academic staff mobility and to further improve personalised assistance to mobile academics in the region.
