DENMARK. A NEW MODEL FOR UNIVERSITY FUNDING PDF Stampa E-mail

The Danish parliament has agreed a new model for university funding, placing less emphasis on the taximeter model in which institutions are awarded funds based on the number of students who have graduated and introducing elements of funding based on quality and outcomes. At stake is each institution's share of the DKK13 billion (US$2 billion) higher education budget, affecting 270,000 students. The agreement, which was passed unopposed, means that from January 2019 higher education institutions will be financed by a basic allocation of 25% fixed upon the present budget level, an activity allocation of 67.5% and an outcome-oriented allocation of 7.5%. After four years 5% of the basic allocation will be dependent on quality achieved, measured using a research-based model of quality assessment, and another 5% of the basic allocation will be dependent on having fulfilled strategic contracts. The quality funding will be allocated after "political prioritising". The basic budget component will be fixed until 2023 when it will be renegotiated. (Fonte: universityworldnews.com 01-12-17)
