This month The European Public Relations Education and Research Association (EUPRERA) in partnership with the EACD has launched its annual survey, the European Communications Monitor on the status and future of strategic communications.

Now in its 13th year, The European Communication Monitor, addresses highly debated topics such as trust and authenticity in public relations, how Artificial Intelligence impacts communication, as well as new forms of content creation and distribution. The survey will identify the characteristics of what makes an excellent communication department and explore commonalities and differences across Europe. Country-to-country comparisons and benchmarks of different types of organisations will make the results relevant for professionals in the field.

Communication professionals across Europe are invited to participate in the survey, which is available at until 8 March 2019. Participants will be able to input and share their experiences to build a concise picture of the growing discipline. Every participant will receive a full report of the results and be entered in a prize draw for 5 Kindle Paperwhite E-Readers.

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 European Communications Summit in Berlin at the end of May 2019 and at conferences worldwide thereafter.

The European Communication Monitor is led by professors from renowned universities within the framework of the European Public Relations Education and Research Association (EUPRERA) together with the European Association of Communication Directors (EACD), supported by PRIME Research – A Cision company, and Fink & Fuchs.
