The ETER data collection for 2013/2014 is running and data for 27 countries are already validated. The final report of the first two years of the ETER project is now available.
ETER (European Tertiary Education Register) is a project promoted by the Directorate General for Education and Culture of the European Commission, in cooperation with the Directorate General for Research and Innovation and EUROSTAT . The purpose is to build a register of higher education institutions in Europe, providing data on the number of students, graduates, international doctorates, staff, fields of education, income and expenditure as well as descriptive information on their characteristics.

The Register builds on the results and experience of the EUMIDA (EUropean MIcroDAta collection) study and has the following goals:
- Develop a more complete set of indicators and characterize HEIs according to their main activities.
- Extend the coverage of the EUMIDA dataset to cover all European HEIs (with the exception of some small institutions).
- Collect data for 2011 and 2012, validate them and make them publicly available.
- Produce a methodological Handbook, as the basis for a regular data collection on European HEIs.
