Informal Meeting of Directors-General for Higher Education

Informal Meeting of Directors-General for Higher Education
Date: 12.06. - 13.06.2008
Venue: Brdo
Policy area: Education, Youth and Culture
Type of event: Conferences and Expert Meetings

The meeting of Directors-General for Higher Education and the representatives of university rectorship conferences will address the theme of the ‘management and leadership of contemporary universities’. Universities face the global challenges of the present age as well as the need for reform. They therefore need greater autonomy, while the wider environment also expects greater responsibility and higher quality from them. Changed circumstances require new methods of university management and leadership. Are universities capable of undertaking new tasks in the new circumstances? Are executive and managerial staff at universities trained appropriately?

This meeting will provide an opportunity to present studies on the higher education organisation leadership and university management as well as the most recent reforms in the Member States. Along with the presentation of examples of emerging new models of management practices in universities, participants will be able to discuss the need for the professionalisation of administrative and managerial posts, and acquaint themselves with examples of good practices in the development of different ways of training executive and managerial staff.
