Assess and reward Europe┬┤s universities


The statement responds to the report by the High-Level Group that stated Europe’s universities need “urgent renewal”, and suggested that “a clearly defined ‘European university’ label could reward research and higher education institutions which actively and successfully promote open science, open innovation and openness to the world”.

Universities of science and technology already apply these values, providing significant scientific, economic, social and societal impact. CESAER advises and expands upon a number of key dimensions can be used in the assessment of universities, including:

  • Excellent and breakthrough science and technology
  • Stem graduates and innovative mind-sets
  • New forms of learning and teaching
  • Collaboration with stakeholders
  • Leading position in region, country and beyond
  • Scientific, social, economic and societal impact and benefit
  • Values

Support to develop the assessment of European universities and a dedicated funding scheme are needed to reward new and innovative ideas that such universities already apply now.
CESAER is committed to offer our expertise to further the assessment of Europe´s universities and the corresponding funding instruments.
