Join the BM2020 benchmarking survey till 11 May

Due to many requests, we have decided to give you an extra two weeks for filling the BM2020 benchmarking  survey, and can gladly announce that the new and final deadline will be 11 May. We hope this gives you enough time to collect all the data!

Your input is valuable and we hope that everyone finds interesting peers for their own comparisons and use. This is also the first time we try to collect data on how the pandemic influenced on the IT costs, thus we are looking forward to an interesting analysis!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us: bm-pg@eunis.org.
