    The ELLEIEC ERASMUS thematic network was running from October 2008 to September 2011. This project deals with several aspects linked to Lifelong Learning in Electrical and Information Engineering in Europe. Within this project, Task 4 is dedicated to “Implementation issues across EIE”. The idea of this task was to see how we can, thanks to implementation using Programs available from the European Commission, and associates (ERASMUS, CD, ERASMUS-MUNDUS, ATLANTIS, IP) to emphasize and develop mobility and cross-recognition. Another aspect, strongly connected, was to analyze the existing and possible interactions of Higher Education Institutions and Lifelong Learning. The European consortium of ELLEIEC was a good opportunity to conduct a survey on that point in the various countries involved in the program. Two surveys one for the “bachelor and master” levels and one for the doctoral studies were carried out. The survey for the doctoral studies was statistically analyzed. Furthermore, the doctoral studies survey was investigated using clustering analysis and more precisely hierarchical, in order to compare the answers in 21 European countries and to find similarities among them.
