EUA releases new data on public funding for universities

The findings of the 2017 Public Funding Observatory are now available on the EUA website. The study, fuelled by data from EUA members, is presented in a report and online tool. It captures the very latest funding trends in Europe and offers the most up-to-date information on 34 different higher education systems.

The analysis reveals that since the 2008 financial crisis, the divide between higher education systems that increase public funding, and those that reduce investment, is getting wider. It also shows that while 2012 was the most difficult year in terms of cuts, any recovery that can now be detected is slow and fragile.

“Once university funding is cut, it takes a long time to catch up. Decreases may hit all activity areas, including teaching, research, infrastructure and staff,” explains Thomas Estermann, EUA’s Director of Governance, Funding and Public Policy Development. “If Europe sees more economic growth, we need to seize the opportunity to invest in higher education and set the stage for long-term sustainable funding trends.”

Student numbers and dynamic economic contexts affect university funding. A handful of countries have increases that match student numbers and GDP growth, while others demonstrate the need to investment more in order to close the gap.

Brexit negotiations: First phase ends on a positive note for universities

On 8 December 2017, the European Commission and the British government declared that they had reached an agreement on citizens’ rights after Brexit, the status of the Irish border, and the financial settlement. EU member states’ leaders still have to formally agree to it at the summit on 15 December, but it is very likely that they will follow the recommendations by the European Commission. This means that the second phase of negotiations, dedicated to the future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union after March 2019, can begin next year.

EUA Newsletter 19 – 10/11/17

EUA presents detailed proposals for the new Framework Programme for Research & Innovation

With the debate on the next Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (FP9) in full swing, EUA has launched a set of precise recommendations for the post-2020 period.

In the publication, presented this week at an EUA policy event in Brussels, the Association builds on months of reflection, further defining its vision developed last year, and providing concrete solutions to issues regarding rules and participation criteria.

As one of the first pan-European stakeholders to put forward such proposals, EUA focuses its attention on three key areas that must be addressed in the new programme:

  • provision of long-term policies and funding instruments for research
  • reinforcement of collaboration and minimisation of discrepancies across the EU
  • to seek a stronger alignment of EU policies for education, research and innovation
EUA’s proposals highlight issues such as the need for sustainable funding, incentives fostering multidisciplinarity and a more open scientific system. They also target the complex geographical imbalances present in participation and the use of resources. In addition, the recommendations focus on the need to support the development of human talent as the fundamental driver of innovation.

“Building a more competitive, prosperous and inclusive Europe requires a strong framework programme, capable of fully supporting and leveraging European research and innovation,” said Professor Martine Rahier, EUA Vice-President and Chair of the EUA Research Policy Working Group. “Therefore, it is essential to get it right post-2020.”

EUA’s recommendations build on the Association’s Vision for FP9, member consultation on the Horizon 2020 mid-term review, the campaign for “EU funding for universities”, and the Association’s ongoing work on Open Science and Smart Specialisation. They were prepared in consultation with EUA’s Research Policy Working Group and the EUA Council. EUA’s recommendations also echo several of the ideas presented in the European Commission’s report LAB-FAB-APP Investing in the European Future We Want (the “Lamy” report).


Support EUA’s advocacy for the establishment of a flexible Erasmus+ grant to integrate international talent with a protection status

Scholars and students are among the groups that are frequently persecuted for their academic and civic engagement. Data collected by EUA on the Refugees Welcome Map proves that universities all over Europe already support students and scholars who are obliged to flee their countries. The main reason why universities cannot do more is simply a lack of funding, as they usually have to rely on their own financial resources and the voluntary engagement and commitment of individual staff. Funding and support initiatives exist only at some national levels, and dedicated organisations such as Scholars at Risk and CARA face increasing difficulties to find placements for scholars.

Open science: EUA publishes statement for EU institutions and national governments and Recommendations on Research Data Management and Text & Data Mining

On 27 October the EUA Council adopted a political statement on Open Science. The document includes key messages from the university sector addressed to EU institutions and national governments, with a view to contributing to the faster development of an open scholarly knowledge exchange system. The statement focuses particularly on prioritising open access to research publications and to research data, and on creating adequate framework conditions for the re-use of research outcomes produced as a result of publicly funded research.

EUA responds to the European Commission’s Work Programme 2018

The work programme of the European Commission for 2018 was adopted on 24 October. In its response, EUA regrets that the present programme does not include visible efforts to further develop the European Research Area (ERA). By realising Europe’s potential in research and innovation through working seamlessly across borders and closing the innovation divide between the member states, this in itself would be a powerful factor for accomplishing the ambitions of the Commission, creating sustainable growth and jobs for our continent and retaining a competitive industrial base.
