Universities Implementing Full Costing

http://www.eua.be/images/events/logo.jpg4 February 2011, University Foundation, Belgium. To become financially sustainable, universities need to be able to identify the full costs of all their activities. EUA’s continuing work on full costing is now taken up by the EUIMA – Full Costing project (“European Universities Implementing the Modernisation Agenda”), which will organise a series of events around Europe, one of which is the country workshop in Belgium.
The workshop will bring together international experts to work with the leadership and management of Belgian universities, as well as with responsible federal and regional government bodies and funding agencies. The aim of the workshop is to contribute to the development of a coordinated approach to the implementation of full costing among Belgian universities in both communities, and to discuss strategic issues such as how to ensure external support to the project. The workshop will also strive to define a roadmap for the implementation of full costing in Belgium, inviting interested institutions to join the follow-up activities.
The format of the workshop will be very practical and will draw on examples of best practice in the implementation of full costing in Europe which will be carefully selected to suit the specific needs and conditions in Belgium. It will provide a forum for debate, giving participants the opportunity to discuss the framework conditions needed to implement full costing in Belgian universities and to establish a network for cooperation between institutions.
This country workshop is aimed exclusively at the national audience in the host country. The event should be of interest to institutional leaders and managers such as rectors, vice rectors, heads of administration and heads of finance departments as well as other interested members of the university community.

What's new in Brussels?

http://www.aca-secretariat.be/fileadmin/templates/2009/images/logosmall.jpgWhat's new in Brussels? Recent developments in European policies and programmes. Brussels, 21 January 2011. 28th in the series “European Policy Seminars” of the Academic Cooperation Association
Like every year since its start in 2004, the 2011 edition of the ACA European Policy seminar What”s new in Brussels” will surely live up to the promise in its name: it will provide you with rich information on and in-depth analysis of the latest policy and programme developments with a relevance for European higher education.
This year’s seminar will have a special focus on the plans for the next generation of the European Union’s education and research funding instruments after 2013. High-level speakers from the European Commission, and intimate observers and analysts of EU policy will present on the future of flagship programmes such as Marie Curie, Erasmus Mundus and Erasmus. We will also analyse the European Commission’s latest mobility strategy, “Youth on the Move” and, from the field of research, we will present plans for an “Innovation Union”. Last but not least, you will have the chance to learn about a Dutch-Flemish initiative for the assessment of internationalisation, which might become a model for Europe.
