Steering Of Universities (PRIME -SUN)

Prof Ewan Ferlie and Gianluca Andresani (School of Management, University of Hull and PhD student working with Prof Ferlie)

Prof Ewan Ferlie and Gianluca Andresani (School of Management, University of Hull and PhD student working with Prof Ferlie) The CPSO is an associate member of the PRIME collaboration which brings together a number of high quality research centres working on aspects of science and technology policy across the EU. SUN PRIME is a subgroup which investigates strategic change in the steering of Universities across different countries in the EU. PRIME has made €28,000 available to CPSO to support bid preparation and cross group activity. This research collaboration is coordinated by Prof Catherine Paradeise, University of Marne La Vallee Paris, who is a CPSO External Associate. The team is interested in investigating how Universities are 'steered' by governmental and non-governmental actors, and whether this varies by jurisdiction across the EU. This proposal helps diversify our research out of health care and into related public sector organisations and also strengthen European collaborations. The teams all presented papers at the 2005 European Group of Organisational Studies (EGOS) Conference held in Berlin and will also present at the main PRIME conference in Paris in February 2006.
