EUA launches EUA Solutions: a new service for universities and higher education policy makers

EUA is pleased to announce the launch of “EUA Solutions” that will offer universities the opportunity to commission tailor-made services in a wide range of strategic areas related to higher education.


EUA Solutions will offer a variety of services ranging from thematic analyses and strategic studies to consultancy and specialised expert advice on particular issues such as internal quality assurance, organisation of doctoral schools, internationalisation, Bologna implementation, communication, lifelong learning and student tracking. EUA Solutions will also offer support for decision-makers and national authorities for policy development in higher education.


While each activity will be tailored to specific requests, the methodology used will generally be based around three core elements: background material provided by the commissioning organisation presenting and analysing the current situation; a site visit carried out by a team of European experts, selected from the wide EUA network for their knowledge and experience in the target area; and a comprehensive written report with specific recommendations.


Designed to complement EUA’s existing membership services, EUA Solutions’ services will be carried out on a non-profit, full costing basis therefore the cost of each activity will depend on the exact requirements of the exercise.


More information is available on the EUA website


EUA would also like to inform members attending next week’s EUA Annual Conference, and who might be interested in finding out more about EUA Solutions, that it will be possible to ask questions at the EUA Solutions information desk/stand in the registration area of the Conference venue.
