In the framework of a European project entitled "Emerging Modes of Cooperation between Universities and Private Sector Organisations", researchers from various EU countries are exploring how employers perceive modes of cooperation with higher education institutions, as well as the drivers and barriers involved in such cooperation. It involves studies in several EU countries and reinforces the link between higher education and enterprises. The results are analyzed on the national and European level. Data from the survey are archived in Social Science Data Archives.

Privacy aspects of the EMCOSU data

The information gathered in the questionnaire of the large scale survey will be treated confidentially and only be used for scientific research purposes. All information that might indirectly identify respondents or organisations (e.g. place of residence, name of organisation etc.) will be eliminated from the data file before it is made available. Publications based on the EMCOSU large scale survey data will never contain information that can identify individual respondents or individual organisations.

For European Community member states, national legislation follows EC Directive 95/46/EC on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data – also see: _summaries/information_ society/data_protection/l14012_en
