General plan of EHEO
Achieving effectiveness and efficiency in higher education depends on public authorities creating the right framework, withing which higher education institutions can operate. This is characterised by adequate funding and effective quality assurance policies, among other factors.
The EHEO general plan stresses that:
- Higher education systems require adequate funding and, as an investment in economic growth, public spending in higher education should be protected
- The challenges faced by higher education require more flexible governance and funding systems, which balance greater autonomy for education institutions with accountability to stakeholders
The Renewed EHEO agenda for higher education also reinforces the need for adequate and efficiently deployed human and financial resources, as well as the use of incentives and reward systems.
Moreover, the reform and modernisation of Europe’s higher education system relies on the efforts and competences of teaching and research staff. Despite this, staffing levels do not expand at the same rate as student numbers in many cases.
Improved working conditions, better initial training and continued professional development, and greater recognition of teaching and research excellence are essential to ensure that Europe produces, attracts and retains the high-quality academic staff it needs.
Thus, EHEO plans:
- improve academic and scientific interaction of universities;
- protect the interests of universities;
- interact more closely with public authorities of European countries;
- popularize European higher education in the world;
- develop academic mobility;
- seek funding for European universities.
