OECD IMHE 2010 General Conference
The OECD IMHE 2010 General Conference on Higher Education in a World Changed Utterly Doing More with Less was held in Paris, 13-15 September 2010.
With the global financial crisis having a significant impact on OECD countries, the IMHE Conference, Higher Education in a World Changed Utterly: Doing More with Less, focused on how the higher education sector including governments, institutions and individuals could lead the way to sustainable recovery. How can effective and efficient results be achieved at a time of greater demand with fewer resources? Capitalising on the OECD’s highly-respected evidence base, the conference drew on analyses and opinions from some of the world’s leading experts. The main goal of the conference was to identify longer-term trends within a global context. Key topics included governance, resources, technology, relevance and sustainability. National policies were analysed, institutional case studies were presented as well as the latest research from the OECD and elsewhere.
The biennial conference is an eminent event for those involved in higher education. It brings together higher education policy makers, institutional leaders and academic experts. With notable speakers, stimulating conference sessions, this conference also provides important networking opportunities for participants.
