EUA Briefing analyses university mergers in Europe
A briefing published by the European University Association (EUA) analyses the features of university mergers, which it describes as a widely spread phenomenon in Europe. The briefing, published on 8 May 2019, analyses the features of close to 130 cases of university mergers and clusters (since 2000) recorded in the EUA University Merger Tool, and identifies different patterns across the continent. According to the briefing, merger and concentration activity takes various forms and has evolved across this period; it is given renewed attention in a context of consolidation of the higher education landscape as well as in light of new modes of inter-institutional collaboration.
