The “EuRA Index” was inspired by Helmut Berg who persuaded EuRA Members in Germany to set up and funded it to provide statistical information on the German market. It was launched in August 2008. Following its success the project will be extended to all EuRA Members from January 2010. This will occur in stages and so the initial questionnaire will be sent to all members in Germany and the United Kingdom. France, the Benelux and the Nordic Regions will come on line in February and March. Other regions will be added over the year. In addition we intend to extend the ‘EuRA Index’ to RMCs. At the 2009 ARP conference in Oxford the project was introduced to the UK. ARP members showed great interest in participating. The ARP research will start in the near future.
