AEC U- Multirank Pilot project (2015-2016)


The AEC U-Multirank pilot project aims to test the validity, viability and practicability of the dimensions and indicators developed by the AEC U-Multirank Working Group, which was approved by the AEC membership at the General Assembly in Glasgow in November 2015.

The ambition of the AEC is to develop a best possible tool that can support institutions that want to participate in U-Multirank by their own choice, institutions that will be confronted with U-Multirank through the participation in U-Multirank of their mother institutions, and institutions that in the future may be asked to participate by their national authorities. 

AEC is pleased to confirm that the U-Multirank pilot project was officially launched in January 2016. 

All the AEC volunteer institutions representatives will meet for a whole day workshop in June 2016 to provide feedback regarding the data collection process and to contribute to the interpretation and discussion of the pilot results. A detailed report including the pilot project results and the feedback from the participating institutions will be presented to the AEC Council in September 2016. 

Finally, the results of the pilot project together with the recommendations of the AEC Council will be presented to the AEC membership at the AEC Congress in Gothenburg in November 2016 for them to decide if higher music education institutions should be included in the U-Multirank survey 2017.
