Webinar – “Performance-based Funding of Universities in Europe” (May 25, 2016).
The European University Association (EUA) is organising a webinar on Wednesday 25 May 2016 (14.00-15.00 CET). The topic will be “Performance-based Funding of Universities in Europe”.
Higher education institutions across Europe face today a demanding and complex financial context. The level of public investment in universities is going down in many countries since the start of the financial and economic crisis in 2008. Only a few countries keep up or increase their financial contribution to the sector and even those who did so far, begin to struggle recently. In addition traditional modes of public funding have been transformed and continue to evolve. Linking public funding to institutional performance is becoming more frequent.
This webinar will give an overview of “Performance-based Funding of Universities in Europe” and focus in particular on funding formulae with output indicators (such as numbers of graduates) and performance contracts. It will discuss the opportunities, risks and limits of performance-based funding and offer advice and good practice examples from across Europe.
Thus it will be of particular interest to university leaders and managers with regard to their strategic planning and internal funding allocation at institutional level. For policy makers, public authorities and funders it will furthermore provide key recommendations for the design and implementation of sustainable and efficient university funding systems.
Should you or a colleague wish to attend the webinar, please register by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday 24 May 2016 at noon (CET) indicating your name, function and affiliation. You will then receive further instructions on how to access the webinar. The webinar is free of charge, but the capacity of people who can access the session is technically limited.
