The Student Social Survey 2019 is being conducted and analysed by the research group HER at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS) in Vienna.

The IHS is a non-university teaching and research institute in the fields of economics and finance, political science and sociology.

The research group Higher Education Research (HER) at the Institute for Advanced Studies mainly carries out research on students and graduates as well as on higher education funding. Aside from projects on national level, inter alia commissioned by Federal Ministries or Higher Education Institutions, HER engages in pan-European projects (EUROSTUDENT, EUROGRADUATE) and the Bologna process (e.g. PL4SD).

Further information on research activities of HER can be found here.

The Social Survey 2019 project team is made up of Martin Unger, Sarah Zaussinger, Anna Dibiasi, David Binder, Judith Engleder, Berta Terzieva and Bianca Thaler.
