APiKS – Academic Profession in the Knowledge-Based Society

In 2017, the international study “Academic Profession in the Knowledge Society" (APIKS) started a broad international comparative survey of the working conditions in academia and the attitude of scientists.

The new study will involve research teams from at least 23 countries (Australia, Brazil, China, the UK, Japan, Mexico, Russia, South Korea and the USA) from all over the world. The Swiss survey is conducted by a team of researchers from ZHAW (Zurich University of Applied Sciences) and CHESS (Center for Higher Education and Science Studies, University of Zurich).
