Changes in University incomes

The primary task of the CHINC project is to collect quantitative and qualitative information at the institutional level for a sample of 100 European institutions. The focus is on the research incomes of individual universities, colleges and other higher education institutions. Data is collected by a team of European researchers that covers eleven (11) countries (Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom) and a ten-year period (1994-2003). Eight of the institutions are from the Netherlands and ten from Germany. Data for these is collected by CHEPS.

The data is analysed in order to establish stylised facts about what is happening in European higher education institutions’ research. Do shifts in government funding lead to shifts in research portfolios? What about the role of project funding? What is the development in research carried out for business and industry?
