Dear HUMANE member,
Please find attached the invitation to the EUA experts conference “Towards Financially Sustainable European Higher Education Institutions in Brussels on 7-8 February 2007.
Due to recent collaboration with EUA, HUMANE members have priority acess to this event.
As HUMANE Chairman I would like to encourage you to participate as financial expertise is a key issue for our profession.
This high level conference will gather experts from across Europe to identify the key elements necessary for financial survival in the future. Policy makers, institutional leaders and researchers on the topic will explore the links between funding and autonomy, accountability and governance structures and aim to pinpoint the key features of sound costing systems.
The event will present the first findings from EUA’s current funding project and an insight into the OECD study on "Funding systems and their effects on higher education systems". It will also give us the opportunity to influence recommendations in the EUA funding publication, which this conference is part of.
HUMANE members can register under http://www.eua.be/index.php?id=549
Last but not least, let me wish you and yours all the best in the incoming year !!!
Kind regards/Un abrazo
