State of the Art


After thorough qualitative research, we are finally ready to present the key finding of the study on attracting and supporting international Ph.D. students, lecturers, and researchers in 10 countries of the Central-Eastern and South-Eastern Europe (Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia).

The report Attracting and Supporting International Ph.D. Students, Lecturers, and Researchers in Central-Eastern and South-Eastern Europe: Current Status and Recommended Improvements provides novel insights into this understudied topic in the target region based on the robust evidence collected from the region in 2021, including policy analysis, a survey of 640 international Ph.D. students, lecturers, and researchers hosted or employed by institutions in the target region and a series of 70 semi-structured interviews with the responsible higher education managers and support staff. Further details are available HERE.


At the same time, we are also preparing:

  • Modular Welcome Service Framework and Online UniWeliS application - first drafts have already been made and we are moving forward to the next level. The final version of the app will be available in May 2022.
  • Comprehensive training programme for HE managers and professionals engaged in the internationalisation processes.
