On Friday 24 November there will be the webinar to launch the new Eurydice publication on academic staff “Eurydice Brief – Modernisation of Higher Education in Europe: Academic Staff – 2017”
The document is the Eurydice synthesis report drawing from the more extended report “Modernisation of Higher Education in Europe: Academic Staff – 2017” on academic personnel in European Higher education, released in June. In recent year, this sector has undergone deep changes, such as increased number of students, new regulations and financing mechanisms, new quality assurance systems and increased society’s needs. However, the impact of these changes on academic staff wasn’t given enough attention.
Eurydice synthesis report focuses on some of the main conclusions drawn up from the report, dealing with political planning, European academic careers in Europe, working and teaching conditions.
What Eurydice is
Eurydice is the European network which collects, analyses and spreads information on policies, structures and organisation of the European educational systems. The network was created in 1980 under the initiative of the European Commission and is composed of the European Unit in Brussels and the national units. Since 1985, the Italian national unit has been based at Indire.
