EUA briefing looks at impact of COVID-19 crisis on university funding
The European University Association (EUA) has published a briefing on the possible implications of the coronavirus pandemic and its expected economic impact for university funding in Europe in the short to medium term. The briefing was published on 18 May 2020.
The paper is based on data collected under the EUA Public Funding Observatory over more than a decade and focuses on lessons learnt from the 2008 global financial crisis. It analyses the pitfalls of past policy and institutional responses to the global financial crisis, which proved to be ineffective or even risky in the longer term. The EUA briefing also includes a series of recommendations on how to avoid repeating mistakes and how to move ahead at a stage in which policymakers and institutional leaders are searching for solutions to the economic recession expected to be triggered by the Covid-19 crisis.TOP
