EUA is very pleased to present the latest edition of its Public Funding Observatory
, offering the most up-to-date information on 34 higher education systems across Europe. The data is presented in a report, an online interactive tool
and individual country reports
. Now in its 10th edition, the main report gives an overview of the latest public funding developments, as well as trends captured over a decade. Our aim is to support members in national policy dialogues and in promoting ambitious investment so we can fulfill our missions and support our knowledge economies. We are indebted to the national rectors’ conferences for this study, as they regularly provide extensive funding data from their countries.
Higher education and research organisations from both the EU and the UK have published a common statement
calling for the UK’s full association to the future Erasmus+ and Horizon Europe programmes. I had the pleasure of addressing this topic in The Guardian
with an editorial stressing this sensible goal, as well as the need for policy makers to act swiftly.
EUA is busy with preparations for its Annual Conference
, which will be kindly hosted by our member, Gdańsk University of Technology, on 16 and 17 April. This year’s theme is “Universities building a better Europe.” We look forward to seeing you there to discuss the crucial role of universities in creating knowledge and fostering democratic and sustainable societies. The EUA General Assembly will take place alongside the Annual Conference. This will be an opportunity for members both to reflect on EUA’s history and to give input to the future strategy of the Association.
I wish you very happy reading,
