Summer School 2003

After two years of most successful CHEPS Summer Schools (held in Enschede and in Barcelona), we held the third Summer School in Maribor, Slovenia (30 June until 4 July 2003). The theme was "The Uses of the University” The socio-economic role of higher education.

We will continue the Summer School initiative because we believe that it is important to bring together the new generation of higher education researchers and to encourage them to develop and formulate their visions on higher education research in the 21st century.

Since in many countries the critical mass in this field of research and opportunities for cross-fertilization are limited, an international initiative is necessary for Ph.D. students to interact directly with distinguished scholars as well as for meeting with students from other countries.
