Registration for the EUNIS benchmarking survey BM2016 open

BencHEIT survey BM2016

 The BencHEIT 2016 survey measures and compares the volumes and cost levels of IT at various organisational levels in European Higher Education Institutions (HEI).

BencHEIT is the first serious European level effort to create a survey which would be meaningful and useful in the European Higher Education context. BencHEIT works on the basis of voluntary work and total openness – every participating university or higher education institute can see all the data of all other participants, but commercial use of the data is prohibited.

Join the survey now

The next round of BenchHEIT BM2016 has already started. Please, find video instructions on how to sign up and an introduction to the survey itself here. The survey form is in Excel and you are requested to finish the data collection until 20th of April 2017.  For a first-timer it takes about 10 working days, but the process gets easier every year.

Please, register by clicking on the blue button below, and fill in the information required in the e-mail. This way we can ensure we have the right contact information. Anyone is welcome to join, and participation is totally free of charge.

The HOLA Cloud Roadmap – identify the major challenges

The HOLA Cloud Roadmap – identify the major challenges

The HOLA Cloud roadmap compiles the opinion of ICT experts to assess how CLOUD Computing will develop over the next years.

Basing on the experts’ opinions the roadmap tries to identify which long-term developments are needed on basis of the overall research and development trends both in industry and academy, as well as market trends that indicate how the requirements and market needs will develop.

The Roadmap has now been published as a living document on HOLA Cloud website, where the key topics and the individual aspects are presented in full detail and opened to discussion. In regular intervals, the comments will be analysed and the roadmap updated accordingly. On behalf of euroCRIS (the partner of the project) we encourage  to contribute to the HOLA Cloud Roadmap.

Contribute to the HOLA Cloud Roadmap

Hola Cloud received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The project targets to establish effective mechanisms for efficient collaboration among the members of the Software, Services and Cloud Computing community.
