About the European Communication Monitor

The European Communication Monitor is the largest transnational study on strategic communication worldwide. It has been conducted annually since 2007 with more than 3,300 participating communication professionals from 50 countries in the last edition.

This year's survey will be conducted until March 31, 2018. Results will be released at the European Communications Summit in mid-June. Similiar surveys have been initiated in Latin America, Asia-Pacific and North America. More than 5,000 practitioners are surveyed in each wave of the series.

Living up to highest academic standards, this study is run by a network of leading research universities organised by the European Public Relations Education and Research Association (EUPRERA) and the European Association of Communication Directors (EACD), supported
by PRIME Research and Fink & Fuchs. Privacy is fully respected.
