9 and 10 October 2014. Take part in EUA’s second Funding Forum, join the debate on the future of higher education funding and share experiences with colleagues and peers from around Europe.

A biannual event, the Funding Forum is a unique, inclusive platform open to all higher education funding stakeholders – university leaders and managers, researchers, students, public authorities, public and private funders & partners. This year’s Forum focuses on designing strategies for efficient and sustainable funding of higher education in Europe.

Participants of the Forum will:

  • Receive the latest analysis of the financial status of Europe’s university sector
  • Get an overview of the latest trends in funding models in Europe
  • Explore the interaction between funding models and the re-structuring of the higher education landscape in different European countries
  • Examine the consequences of integrating performance-related criteria in funding models
  • Share experiences in managing institutional mergers
  • Learn how European-level policy objectives are embedded in the different streams of European funding available to universities.

Meet peers and become acquainted with the latest research on the topic as well as with best practice selected across Europe; participate in an event which will contribute to the further design of the higher education funding policy agenda at regional, national and European level.
