Eurydice Brief: Modernisation of Higher Education in Europe: Academic Staff – 2017

16 October 2017

The higher education sector has experienced profound changes in recent years. As student numbers have continued to increase, new steering and funding mechanisms have been established, quality assurance systems have been further developed and societal demands have expanded.

Eurydice briefYet there has been too little focus on the impact and implications of these developments for academic staff, who play a vital role in higher education institutions and systems.

The Eurydice Brief: Modernisation of Higher Education in Europe: Academic Staff – 2017 is based on a comprehensive report, Modernisation of Higher Education in Europe: Academic Staff – 2017 published in June, which explores the realities for academic staff in this changing higher education landscape. The brief focuses on some of the main findings, including on human resource policy planning, academic careers, working conditions, and teaching. It concludes by highlighting three key concerns for policy-making: 'leveling the playing field for academic careers', 'balancing institutional autonomy and government oversight' and 'improving information gathering on academic staff'.

On Friday 24 November, between 12.30 and 14.00, a webinar will be hosted to launch this Eurydice Brief. To access the webinar, just follow the link on the day.
