HUMANE Seminar Cyprus University of Technology, Limassol Friday 20 to Saturday 21 November, 2015 - Enhancing Research and Innovation in Universities
HUMANE is pleased to announce our next Seminar Enhancing Research and Innovation in Universities.

In this Seminar we will look at different approaches to support research and innovation in universities. The Cyprus University of Technology (CUT) will offer a unique setting to explore how young universities can build strong research and innovation agendas.  The following topics will be explored:

- How do universities transform their professional services to support new developments in research and innovation
- What are the implications of cross-organisational/cross-sectoral partnerships (e.g. universities working with industry) for university management
- What are the successful examples of regional engagement between multiple and diverse players
- What are the financial challenges for universities
- What are the consequences on the management of human resources
- New strategy engagement with the external environment

Participants will have ample opportunities to exchange ideas with the speakers and with colleagues, reflecting on their own situation.

HUMANE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SERIES - International Staff Training: Technology Transfer - UNIVERSITY OF BOLOGNA 9–13 NOVEMBER 2015

Cari Colleghi, 

vi segnalo che nell'ambito dell'attività svolta in Humane, il "CoDAU" europeo, ho ritenuto utile promuovere un'attività di training per giovani promettenti funzionari con almeno 5 anni di servizio svolto nel ruolo, quindi non neoassunti ma neppure troppo avanti nella loro carriera professionale. L'iniziativa si inserisce in una nuova sezione di attività, Professional development series, che su proposta della delegazione italiana alla round table di cui faccio parte costituirà una nuova importante area di sviluppo dell'associazione europea che si trova in una fase interessante di ridefinizione del proprio ruolo e della strategia per i prossimi anni (www.humane.eu).

In allegato trovate il primo modulo che si terrà a Bologna nella seconda settimana di novembre. Le iscrizioni sono possibili sul sito di Humane. 

I moduli, di cui il primo sarà sulla ricerca e trasferimento tecnologico tenuto conto che si tratta di uno dei punti di forza di Bologna, avranno a tema i principali processi manageriali che interessano in misura crescente le nostre organizzazioni: risorse umane, risorse finanziarie, attrazione di talenti, didattica e servizi agli studenti, ecc..

L'organizzazione dei moduli prevede 5 giorni di attività di cui i primi due occupati da keynote speaker che inquadreranno il tema gestionale del modulo entro un ambito strategico, offrendo elementi di riflessione e di inquadramento anche teorico. Il terzo giorno è dedicato alla presentazione di esperienze pratiche. Gli ultimi due giorni sono dedicati allo sviluppo da parte dei partecipanti di casi concreti utilizzando una "cassetta degli attrezzi" composta da quanto ricavabile nelle prime tre giornate e da quanto gli stessi partecipanti riusciranno a trarre dalla propria esperienza professionale, dal contesto diverso in cui operano e non ultimo dalla loro capacità manageriale di mettere insieme tutti gli elementi e i contributi.

Una particolare attenzione sarà dedicata nelle ultime due giornate alla messa in campo e quindi allo sviluppo delle necessarie soft skills, con il supporto e il prezioso contributo di manager esperti di queste dinamiche.
Al termine della settimana ci si attende due "prodotti": persone formate su temi di rilievo manageriale e "cassette degli attrezzi" aggiornate con il contributo di diverse esperienze manageriali e utili per lo svolgimento delle attività al rientro nei propri contesti di appartenenza.

Infine non va dimenticato che lavorare con altri colleghi di altri paesi e altre organizzazioni universitarie può costituire in prospettiva un utile rete di lavoro.

Spero che l'iniziativa possa attrarre il vostro interesse, mi riferisco non solo a Bologna ma anche ai moduli che verranno sviluppati dal 2016, e che possiate dedicare qualche persona alla partecipazione alle attività di Humane che sta iniziando ad offrire strumenti interessanti per il nostro lavoro.

Un saluto cordiale a tutti voi.

HUMANE Seminar in Toulouse - Quality Management - September 25-26

HUMANE Seminar
Université Toulouse 1, Capitole, France
Friday 25 to Saturday 26 September, 2015

Quality Management

Quality Management Definition: ‘a system by which an organisation aims to reduce and eventually eliminate nonconformance to specifications, standards and customer expectations in the most cost effective and efficient manner’ Is this definition taken from the “business dictionary” valid in all its forms for HEIs? 

Quality management as a means to ensure the quality of training and research has existed in North America and British institutions for some time. In France it has existed for training in Engineering since the 1930s. It is obvious that early development of quality management as a condition for accreditation is closely linked to vocational training and the link with the professional world where there is a ready capacity to set up relevant specifications and standards. 

The Bologna declaration is best known for the ECTS system it created that allows student mobility between different countries: one tends to forget that mutual recognition relies on trust based on common standards verified by quality management procedures and common quality assurance standards and guidelines. 

It has created a drive toward accreditation and common quality assurance standards that aims to improve the reliability of the overall system. 

But whereas the business schools are submitted to common standards through common quality management standards verified by institutions that boast international recognition and as a consequence are directly comparable, other institutions with a wider range of academic disciplines lack a common accreditation process that would allow more direct comparisons by students as well as other stakeholders. 

HEI’s are closely linked to a country’s identity: in this framework the question of who sets the standards and specifications is crucial and subject to continuous debate even in those areas such as engineering where professional bodies have helped to legitimate common standards. On the other hand there is virtually no experience of this at national or international levels, and perhaps even active resistance, in subject areas such as humanities or pure mathematics. 

That is why today ENQA compares and accredits national accreditation systems, it doesn’t allow for direct comparisons between institutions. This means that at national levels quality management and accreditation systems are often a means to ensure that minimum standards are respected by institutions that rely heavily on public money. 

At the international level league table rankings, even though their methodologies are the subject of intense criticism, have become proxy indicators of “quality” and sources of inter-institutional comparison. There is good evidence to suggest that they have become a crucial determinant of international student choice. 

Through the experience of a variety of speakers we’ll debate these issues and questions.

Speakers

Frederic Forest - Deputy Director - Financial Allocations, French Ministry of Higher Education and Research, France (FR)
Alex Pellacani - Finance Manager, Università degli Studi di Trento (IT) 
Katrina Swanton - Academic Quality Advisor, Edinburgh Napier University (UK)

HUMANE Study Trip - Cardiff University, Tuesday 20th to Friday 23rd October 2015

HUMANE Study Trip
Cardiff University, Tuesday 20th to Friday 23rd October 2015
Towards a Global University: Change and Challenge
New Dates Announced - 20th to 23rd October 2015

Following a number of successful Study Trips to universities in Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Switzerland and England, we are pleased to provide details of the next Trip, in May this year, to Cardiff University, in Wales. 

Cardiff University is one of the UKs Russell Group of research intensive universities, with an ambitious global strategy, highly rated research, an international staff and student community . As the leading university in Wales, based in the capital city, it also has a significant regional role.

The Trip will focus on the University’s ambitions to be consistently among the top 100 universities in the world, while, as importantly, being an international university that is of benefit to Wales, forms the theme of this Study Trip. The University’s strategic direction, and the ambitious investment programme and structural changes which support that strategy, will be the starting point for our discussions. Presentations will focus on the University’s vision, an assessment of what has been achieved so far and how best to structure the future realisation of the ambition. There will also be a particular focus on how Professional Services can support and sustain this global vision.

A detailed programme and further information is available from the links below. This promises to be an interesting visit to a successful and ambitious university which has undergone significant change, and should be of interest to a wide range of colleagues. Heads of Administration may want to attend personally, with a group of colleagues, or send colleagues who they think might benefit from the trip, both in terms of the content of the programme and the opportunities for networking. We would also like you to make sure that every participant is able to understand the English presentations and participate in the discussions, which will also be in English.

Cardiff is a cosmopolitan and vibrant capital city with excellent transport links. The Cardiff/Wales airport is nearby and the city has a main line railway station with direct (two hour) links to London, and to Bristol and other parts of the UK. The city boasts a range of historic buildings including a castle and the National Museum of Wales as well as the modern Millennium Stadium which plays host to international rugby and football matches. The iconic television programme Doctor Who is filmed on location in Cardiff, often using University buildings, and there is a permanent Doctor Who exhibition centre in Cardiff Bay.
