Dear colleagues,

Informatics Europe is pleased to announce that its *Informatics Higher 
Education Data Portal* 
<https://www.informatics-europe.org/data/higher-education/> has recently 
been updated with the data of *2019/20 academic year*.

The Portal now covers statistics on students enrolled and degrees 
awarded at Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD level, including gender 
distribution, of 10 academic years for 23 countries. Other data, such as 
a comparative analysis of some key academic positions and corresponding 
employment details 
<https://www.informatics-europe.org/data/higher-education/academic-positions/> and 
estimations of academic salaries 
<https://www.informatics-europe.org/data/higher-education/academic-salaries/> in 
selected countries, is also available in the Portal.

Created in 2019, the Portal aims at providing the Informatics community 
of academic, policymakers, industry and other stakeholders, a complete 
and reliable picture of the state of Informatics (Computer Science, 
Computing, IT, ICT) higher education in Europe. With plenty of 
opportunities for data visualization and in-depth analyses, the full 
data set is available for *download*

valued by our members, Informatics Europe empowers the informatics 
community to better understand trends and improve issues in the European 
higher education system.
