E3M is a three years project co-funded by the European Commission under its Lifelong Learning Programme and developed by partners from eight European countries. The aim of this project is to generate a comprehensive instrument to identify, measure, and compare Third Mission activities of HEIs from a wide perspective. This will be achieved by creating indicators on Third Mission activities and by giving a new approach on the concept of ranking methodologies.
