Universities UK: Efficiency in higher education
Date: Tuesday 26 February 2013
Venue: Universities UK Woburn House, London
With new funding arrangements in place, and a more critical and discerning student community, higher education institutions and their leaders are facing increased pressure to demonstrate efficiency and effectiveness across the board. Since publication of the UUK report on Efficiency and effectiveness in higher education in September 2011, we have been working with higher education professionals to develop infrastructure to support this.
Featuring an exclusive progress report from Professor Ian Diamond on the implementation of the UUK report’s recommendations, this conference presents an opportunity to take stock of the latest developments in efficiency – including teaching, research and operational areas.Introduction to the event.
