Implementing Full Costing at German Universities

Hosted by the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK), Berlin, Germany

9 December 2011

BBAW Building_pic1To become financially sustainable, universities need to be able to identify the full costs of all their activities. EUA’s continuing work on full costing is now taken up by the EUIMA – Full Costing project (“European Universities Implementing the Modernisation Agenda”), which organises a series of events around Europe, one of which is this country workshop in Germany.

The event, which will be the last country workshop in the framework of this project, will bring together international experts to work with the leadership and management of German universities as well as relevant ministries at national and regional level and funding bodies. 

The aim of the workshop is to contribute to the implementation of full costing at German universities by showing the diversity of possible approaches as well as to foster cooperation among universities and public authorities. Strategic issues and financial aspects will be discussed on the basis of examples from different German universities and other European countries. This event will strive to identify concrete steps to take forward the implementation of full costing at German universities.

The format of the workshop will be very practical and will draw on examples of best practice in the implementation of full costing in Europe which will be carefully selected to suit the specific needs and conditions in Germany. It will provide a forum for debate, giving participants the opportunity to discuss the framework conditions needed to implement full costing in German universities and to establish a network for cooperation between institutions. 


This country workshop is aimed exclusively at the national audience in the host country. The event should be of interest to institutional leaders and managers such as rectors, vice rectors, heads of administration and heads of finance departments as well as to representatives of funding bodies and of responsible government ministries.


EUA will organise the country workshop in cooperation with the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK)



The country workshop will take place at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, Markgrafenstraße 38, 10117 Berlin, Germany.
