EAIE Barometer – Money matters

Rumbley, L. E. & Sandström A.-M. (2019) The EAIE Barometer: Internationalisation in Europe (second edition) – ‘Money matters’

Money matters
is the latest release in the EAIE Barometer: Internationalisation in Europe (second edition) series. It explores the complex dynamics around the role of funding in internationalisation activities. The report is based on data from the 2018 EAIE Barometer study, which surveyed 2 317 professionals working on internationalisation at 1 292 higher education institutions in 45 countries across Europe. The newest publication further analyses the Barometer data and divides the role of financial considerations into two categories: ‘money as driver’ and ‘money as obstacle’ to internationalisation.

It also explores in-depth a number of key related questions:

  • How do financial benefits figure into institutions’ overall motivations for pursuing internationalisation activities?

  • What is the role of national-level and Erasmus+ funding in internationalisation, and how satisfied are practitioners with it?

  • How do money matters differ between individual countries?

  • How can practitioners reconcile the marketisation of (internationalisation of) higher education with its status as a public good?


The report can be downloaded from the EAIE website.
