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.
