EUA is organising the first Universities’ Funding Forum in June 2012 (Salzburg, Austria, 11-12/06/2012). The Funding Forum is a unique, inclusive platform open to all higher education funding stakeholders – universities and students, public authorities, public and private funders and partners. The Forum will put forward the views of the sector to national and European decision-makers. The Forum will notably: analyse the impact of the economic crisis on Europe’s universities; look into the future of European funding for universities and their challenges; examine the consequences of integrating “performance” criteria in funding models; explore new ideas to bring money in higher education; help university leaders to design adequate strategies in response to funding changes; discuss both the funders’ and the students’ perspectives on sustainable funding.
