‘Hungarian Higher Education 2009’
Editors: József Berács, Ildikó Hrubos, József Temesi
The presentations are covering three main topics, offering the opportunity to take into consideration the last decade, not only the last year. The higher education performance parameters are starting points of the competitiveness and of the university funding, which is managed through a contractual system according to the new Higher Education Act. There is no doubt, that the most sensation of the year was the process of categorizing the universities to “research-university” or “university of excellence” status, which was based on scientometric methods too, but did not satisfied the international standards required by presenters. Without long term governmental strategy of higher education, the role of institutional strategies become more important, which were discussed by active and emeritus rectors, among them the rector of Babes-Bolyai University.
