Financial standing and performance of European universities - an international data comparison, Background paper
The data situation for the financing and spending of individual universities in a comparable way is unfortunately very poor. In general this information might be available within the statistical offices of Member States, however, this data is not harmonized throughout the EU and certainly not collected at EU-level. Therefore, one has to estimate the financial situation primarily using macroeconomic data such as the share of higher education research expenditure (HERD) of governments R&D expenditure (GERD) or the percentage of GERD, performed by the higher education sector.
