RUSE has a long history in empirical research with large statistical data e.g. concerning equality of educational
opportunity.

RUSE has also experience in large survey projects funded by the EU Framework Programmes: “The Flexible
Professional in the Knowledge Society: New Demands on Higher Education in Europe” (REFLEX, 2004-2007) and
“Higher Education and Graduate Employment in Europe” (CHEERS, 1998-2000) which have included partners from
11-15 countries dealing with competences of HE-graduates and their employment after graduation.

RUSE has also developed modes of analysis for evaluating research and teaching (productivity analyzes).

The latest interest is in developing digitalized learning solutions especially for non-mathematical subjects.
