CESAER, EARTO, EUA, LERU and Science Europe, members of the European Research Area Stakeholders Platform, jointly express their concern regarding the European Commission’s proposed regulation for the new European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI)
CESAER is seriously worried by the Commission Proposal for the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) as published on 13 January 2015 at a time where the global landscape of research and innovation is undergoing substantial changes and emerging economies are challenging Europe’s position.
One of the highlights of the working year was the CESAER Conference “Human Resources in Academia” at TU Delft on 21-22 May 2014 that gathered about 100 HR experts from 25 universities and 16 countries. Eminent keynote speakers were attracted. Parallel sessions addressed main issues in HR: recruitment, career development, leadership development, appraisal and performance management, gender equality, Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R). On top of the presentations and videos that were made available earlier, the Conference Proceedings can now be downloaded.

On 27-28 November 2014, Vienna University of Technology hosted a workshop on "Gender Equality at European Universities of Science and Technology". Experts responsible for gender equality at CESAER universities gathered to have an in-depth discussion on the results of the CESAER Gender Equality Survey that was conducted by CESAER in the course of 2014 and to comment on the draft report. The report consists of two parts: 1) Analysis of the survey results and 2) Synthesis of Gender Equality Plans; the report will be finalised in the coming weeks. The workshop also aimed at exploring possible follow-up activities in order to exploit the opportunities for exchange of information and mutual learning.
