EUA presents first interactive map of university mergers
The European University Association (EUA) presented the first interactive map of university mergers on 8 October 2015. The interactive online map at www.university-mergers.eu reflects the nearly 100 cases of mergers and concentration and clustering processes in the university sector of the last fifteen years. As a pilot, the website also allows users to give feedback and contribute to the development of a unique database.
The University Merger Tool aims at supporting public authorities as well as university leaders and managers to identify previous cases of interest, and thus to promote the exchange of experiences and good practices across borders. The tool should be used in conjunction with the EUA’s analysis of the merger phenomenon, available in the recently released report "Designing Strategies for Efficient Funding of Universities in Europe (DEFINE)". The DEFINE project has received the support of the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union (2012).
