Latest news

    Last week the European Parliament approved the new college of European Commissioners, as presented by the European Commission’s President-elect Jean-Claude Juncker. Meanwhile, the European Commission announced that the European Union's High-Level Group on the Modernisation of Higher Education had published its report to the EC on new modes of learning and teaching in higher education and that the Eurydice Network had released the report on “National Student Fee and Support Systems in European Higher Education 2014/15”.

    Hosted by the University of Bergamo in Italy, from 9 to 10 October, EUA's 2nd Funding Forum gathered around 250 participants from 35 countries. University leaders and managers, researchers, representatives of student bodies, public authorities and private-sector partners came together to discuss and debate “strategies for efficient funding of universities”.

    At EUA’s Funding Forum held last week at the University of Bergamo, EUA presented the 2014 edition of its Public Funding Observatory report, which monitors the impact of the economic crisis on universities and identifies trends in public funding to higher education institutions across Europe since 2008.

    The Institutional Evaluation Programme (IEP) is preparing to evaluate ten universities in the coming academic year. Seven universities will have full evaluations and three further institutions will have follow-up evaluations to assess changes implemented since their last evaluation.

    A new paper published by the European University Association (EUA) and the Academic Cooperation Association (ACA), provides a series of observations on and recommendations for enhancing the complementarity between higher education mobility policies (for both students and staff) at the institutional, national and European level. The intention of the publication is to highlight issues that could be of wider relevance across different national systems in Europe and to raise a number of important questions regarding how institutional and national policies both relate and at times diverge.

    In the first week of November, EUA is organising two events in Brussels to present the outcomes of two different project activities relating to university rankings and university-business research cooperation. On the evening of 4 November (17.30-20.30) EUA will present a new web-based tool for the self-assessment of university-business research cooperation, the “U-B Tool”. Then on the morning of 6 November, EUA and its partners in the RISP project will present a new report: “Rankings in Institutional Strategies and Processes: Impact or Illusion?” at a breakfast event to be held from 8.30 to 10.30.
