To gain comprehensive data suitable to elaborate comparison in the field of KPIs between PuRE-net members we are about to use data from the last PuRE-net survey and a new additional questionnaire that we kindly ask you to fill in. If you did not answer the TWN/PuRE-net Survey, please fill in the data here. If you did answer but you want to correct your previous answers you can do it here. The aim is to include the findings developed of the Strategy WT, concerning strategic paradigms and business models of PuRE-net members.
