The Research Mission of Higher Education Institutions Outside the University Sector by Svein Kyvik and Benedetto Lepori pdf

The Research Mission of Higher Education Institutions Outside the University Sector by Svein Kyvik and Benedetto Lepori pdf. Even if in most countries, higher education institutions outside the university sector originally did not have a research mandate, it is well known that many of these institutions, which in the English language variably are named ‘universities of applied sciences’, ‘university colleges’, ‘institutes of technology’ or ‘polytechnics’, have subsequently developed some research activities.

In general, governments have begun to recognise the research role of these institutions, to provide them with research funding and to initiate various measures for enhancing research activities. However, despite the importance of this issue, only a handful of papers and reports have been published on the research mission of these institutions, and except for Norway and Switzerland, very few in-depth studies have been undertaken.

These studies show that higher education institutions outside the university sector are faced with many challenges in their efforts to develop research as an ordinary activity alongside teaching. Moreover, the enhancement of this activity leads to quite complex interactions with universities, both in the sense of differentiation based on a specific research mandate oriented towards the regional economy and in the improvement of teaching and professional practice, and convergence related to the drift of research towards traditional academic standards. Thus, we believe that there would be substantial interest in Europe for a book that focuses on the research mission of this sector.
