6 April 2023Back to news
A new study released by EC analyses the implementation of performance-based funding systems in the 27 EU Member States and evaluates their impact. One of the findings is that performance agreements and other funding instruments can promote gender equality and inclusion.
In these cases, inclusion is translated into targets that refer to accessibility of higher education for students from minorities, mentoring and supporting disadvantaged students, encouraging equal opportunities, gender equality, innovations in teaching and learning and improvements in the quality of teaching and learning. The study mentions the Netherlands, Germany-Berlin, Croatia, Luxembourg and Denmark as an example of this approach.
