Dear Madam, Dear Sir,
Estonian Rectors’ Conference and
Estonian Rectors’ Conference of Universities of Applied Sciences
have the honour to invite you to attend the higher education conference
MERGERS IN HIGHER EDUCATION – SUCCESS OR FAILURE?
The conference takes place at Kumu Art Museum in Tallinn on October 5, 2012.
The demands for greater efficiency, higher quality and reductions in public budgets have meant that
continually more countries are looking closely at the structure of their
higher education systems, and this has often resulted in extensive reforms.
The mergers may take place all over the higher education domain where comparatively small
universities of applied sciences with focussed specialisation may be reorganised into
university departments (colleges), or, the universities of applied sciences
may be consolidated into more sustainable super-structures.
We do belive that sharing the experience and knowledge on the subject is very valuable,
and we hope that you have the opportunity to participate at the conference.
