Higher education systems are subject to change. And so are academics. This publication looks at the changes in the past 15 years, focusing on financial constraints, efficiency pressure, performance assessment and career predictability. Some of the relevant factors identified were growing competition, the spread of communication technologies and the growing importance of English as the lingua franca in European HE.
Researchers from twelve European countries and beyond contributed country reports to The Changing Conditions for Academic Work and Careers in Select Countries, highlighting major changes in the academic profession in the respective nations. The publication is the 66th of the INCHER series 'Werkstattberichte'.
