Communication professionals across Europe are invited to participate in the survey, which is available at until February 22.


The European Communication Monitor, now in its 14th year, addresses highly debated topics such as ethical challenges, cybersecurity and gender issues in communications, as well as competence development and current strategic issues in the profession. The survey will identify the characteristics of excellent communication departments and explore commonalities and differences across Europe. country-to-country comparisons and benchmarks of different types of organisations (private and joint-stock companies, non-profit, governmental, agencies, etc.) will make the results relevant for everybody in the field.


Participants will be able to answer these and many other topics and share their experiences to build a concise picture of the growing discipline. All participants are entitled to receive the full report for free and can enter a prize draw for 5 Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 instant film cameras – a must-have gadget.


With more than 21,000 participants from over 40 countries to date, the annual European Communication Monitor is the largest empirical survey in communication management and public relations worldwide. The study is undertaken for scientific purposes. Participants will remain anonymous. Results will be presented at the EACD Summit in Amsterdam in the mid of May 2020 and at conferences worldwide thereafter.
