UNIVERSITY GOVERNANCE: IMPEDING OR FACILITATING CREATIVITY?#

Hannover, September 29th – 30th, 2016#


The papers from the symposium will be published in 2017 as a supplement (open access) of The European Review.

A symposium in cooperation with the Hercules Group of the Academia Europaea, the International Centre for Higher Education Research Kasse (INCHER-Kassel) with the generous support of the Volkswagen Foundation.

The relationship between governance and creativity in higher education and research is one of the biggest challenges for the present and future academic and scientific development. Presently, there is a lively debate about the tension between these two essential requirements of research and higher education. A special focus of the present debate lies on the question which governance structures do not limit but allow for creativity which is necessary for the generation of new knowledge at universities.

The aim of the conference is to pursue this question by discussions and presentations. Researchers dealing with issues of governance and creativity in universities will present their findings. Likewise, practitioners representing the field of higher education leadership will contribute from their experiences. As a highlight, the Nobel Prize winner for chemistry in 2014 will present his view on the topic.
