Home (Copyright Bergen Reiselivslag Robin Strand - year’s Annual Conference, hosted by the University of Bergen in Norway and scheduled for 6 and 7 April 2017, will feature the launch of a full-scale update of the Autonomy Scorecard. This exclusive EUA benchmarking tool on university autonomy will provide the backdrop for a discussion on the latest trends, challenges and future of institutional autonomy. A series of plenary sessions and parallel breakout sessions on four dimensions of autonomy (organisational, financial, staffing and academic matters), including case studies, will help delegates to have a structured, in-depth reflection on how to drive this agenda in their national contexts and assess the related effects on the capacity of universities to respond to societal challenges. 

EUA members are also invited to participate in the General Assembly, which will take place on the morning of 6 April. Three new Board members will be elected, replacing David Drewry, Gülay Doğu Barbarosoğlu and Stefano Paleari, whose terms will be ending at the conference. The nominees are Paul Boyle, Vice-Chancellor, University of Leicester; Hana Machková, Rector, University of Economics, Prague; Michael Murphy, Former President, University College Cork; Giuseppe Novelli, Rector, University of Rome, Tor Vergata; and Thomas Wilhelmsson, Chancellor, University of Helsinki.
