EUA Solutions uses a flexible methodology, typically based on the following core elements:
- Background material provided by the commissioning organisation presenting and analysing the current situation;
- A site visit carried out by a team of experts from across Europe, selected from our extensive network for their knowledge and experience in the target area;
- A comprehensive report with specific recommendations.
Our approach will be adapted as required to suit particular needs and the specificities of the assignment. All services will be carried out on a non-profit, full costing basis. Total fees will depend on the exact requirements of the assignment.
“Portuguese higher education has been in transition for some time, following an OECD report in 2006 and a coordinated evaluation by EUA. A number of Bologna reforms were passed into law, but their implementation has been compromised by the financial crisis and the ensuing austerity measures.
By 2012, it was clear that a fundamental re-think of the HE system was necessary. CRUP invited an EUA expert team, drawn from Spain, Switzerland and UK, to offer a “view from the outside”. The EUA team’s recommendations provided a powerful stimulus to the domestic debate on the future of the Portuguese higher education system, to which the government is now responding.”

“We asked EUA to assess our network and provide recommendations regarding strategic and sustainable development, strengthening cooperation among the universities, and improving international visibility. The report gave us an excellent basis on which to define our future strategy and also prompted us to consider some elements of the European policy debate, which we had not previously considered.”
