Summer/winter school: Transforming Higher Education in the Asia-Pacific Rim and Europe

This conference will explore: What is the place of universities in the emerging ‘ecology’ of higher education systems that straddle industry, government and the public sphere? How are universities negotiating the different demands placed upon them to compete in the global knowledge economy?

How are academics, students, managers and policy makers making sense of these changes, and in what alternative ways?
