Modernisation of higher education in Europe

Modernisation of Higher Education in Europe: Academic Staff – 2017 explores the current realities for academic staff within the fast-changing European higher education landscape. The report examines the qualification requirements for academic staff, the recruitment process, employment and working conditions in academia, external quality assurance, and central level strategies for internalisation. The report is largely based on a mixture of qualitative and quantitative data, and covers higher education systems in 35 countries. The report focuses on the most representative categories of higher education staff, primarily those responsible for teaching and/or research. It also contains national diagrams which provide a visual overview of the most representative categories of academic staff in the country concerned.
