Different choices are being made about a wide range of issues, such as selectivity, regulation and quality assurance, system diversity, public/private investment, and combinations of education and research. In much of the developed world, sustaining public funding for the mass higher education system and replacing an ageing academic population are reaching a critical point. While at the very same time, investments in research and education are booming in many rapidly growing economies, notably in Asia. However, even for these countries, as for much of the rest of the developing world, major questions loom about quality, accessibility and retaining academic capital.
The goal of the Conference will be to identify longer-term trends and will include analyses of national and institutional policies, case studies and the latest research from the OECD and elsewhere.
The IMHE biennial General Conference is IMHE's standout event, attracting around 500 participants comprised of higher education policy makers, institutional leaders and academic experts. Notable speakers and stimulating sessions provide an opportunity for members and non-members to share their views and ideas, discuss relevant topics and forthcoming trends, as well as network.
