Short description of the organization (max 12 lines): -
Expertise offered Nowadays wide debates about the role of universities in the knowledge society (in 21st century) and measures for their modernization are going on in Europe. But for their intelligent and informed conducting we need a fundamental base. We consider it necessary to organize comprehensive researches to study the origin and evolution of European universities, and also to work out benchmarking procedures for monitoring, comparative analysis and control over the universities’ activities, which will become the base for their modernization. On the first stage of the researches the role of university traditions will be revealed and mathematical correlation dependence between the age of the university and its modern academic performance (university ranking) will be received, and the role of Arabian transfer of the lost ancient knowledge in the process of generating of European medieval universities will be also found out. On the second stage of the researches the conceptions of European University Scoreboard (the system of indicators of universities’ activities in the frame of educational, research and innovation competencies of universities) and Database of European university policy measures (classes of measures in the frame of educational, research and innovation competencies of universities) will be worked out on the level of separate universities. In the frame of these conceptions statistical data will be collected and questionnaire of universities will be conducted and pilot versions of the abovementioned analytical instruments will be built, which represent the foregoing benchmarking procedures. On the base of use of these procedures typification of European universities will be carried out, research and innovation universities will be identified and comprehensive database of European universities will be built. On the base of the second procedure with the use of method of experts’ estimations, the measures of the best European university practice will be additionally identified. Both procedures will form the base of Trend Chart project on European university by analogy with famous Trend Chart project on Innovation in Europe.
