Performance-based Funding of Universities in Europe
The EUA - European university Association released a new report in July, which maps the use of performance-based funding of universities across Europe and analyses the impact this has on university management, teaching and research as well as the higher education system as a whole. The report reveals performance-based funding of universities is not a magic formula
With this report EUA provides key recommendations to policy makers and public funders for the design and implementation of sustainable and efficient university funding systems. It also supports university leaders and managers in their strategic planning and internal funding allocation at institutional level and offers advice and good practice examples from across Europe. The complexity of funding systems and the diversity across Europe make comparisons challenging, but EUA hopes that the overview provided in the report will help structure the debate about funding reforms at European, national and institutional levels.
After the two reports on Funding for Excellence (December 2014) and University Mergers (April 2015) this is the last one in the series of Thematic Reports coming out of the EUA-led DEFINE project on Designing Strategies for Efficient Funding of Higher Education in Europe (2012-2015) which is co-funded by the European Union under the Lifelong Learning Programme.
