The European Communication Monitor 2008" addresses PR professionals in organisations and consultancies throughout Europe. The online survey at www.communicationmonitor.eu runs until the end of June.

The public opinion market in Europe is converging and so are the public spheres where information is shared and reputation is built. Lead researcher Ansgar Zerfass, professor at the University of Leipzig, remarked, "Public relations are facing new challenges. Our survey tries to identify strategies and approaches that are relevant for future business." The survey will be conducted for the second time. It attracted more than 1.100 participants last year and showed up a number of valuable results. This year's topics include strategic issues, upcoming communication channels, new media, corporate social responsibility, evaluation, agency relationships etc.
