CHEPS’ research, consultancy and outreach activities can be grouped under the following three broad themes:
These themes reflect the central role of higher education as a driver of growth and well-being in societies. Higher education institutions very much contribute to society through their education, research and engagement (theme 1). They do so all in their own way, by choosing different profiles and focusing on particular demands and stakeholders (theme 2). A critical issue then is how higher education institutions are steered, evaluated, funded and, ultimately, how they – and their students! – can become more relevant and perform better as providers of the knowledge, skills and expertise that drive socio-economic progress (theme 3). This is about the governance of higher education – one of CHEPS’ main expertise areas.
