MOBILITY OF STUDENTS, RESEARCHERS AND UNIVERSITY EDUCATORS

Dr. Andreas Mallouppas

Director of Administration and Finance

Cyprus University of Technology


SMALL STATE ENVIRONMENT

  • “All your eggs in one basket”

  • “Jacks of all trades and masters of all [none]”

    Some comparisons:

    DE 200 Unis, UK 140 Unis, NL 16 Unis

    MT 1 Uni, CY 6 Unis

    Universities in small countries cannot afford to fail!!!


INTERNATIONAL . COLLABORATION -(1)

“You do not have to be big to be beautiful”

BUT

“If your small you MUST be beautiful”

Small countries:

  • Limited human and material resources

  • Limited funding and “local” market

  • Limited spectrum of “niche activities”

    Need to overcome disadvantages of scale


INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION

“Which came first the Chicken or the Egg?”

Which comes first international collaboration or a research idea?

They are: “Two sides of the same coin”

  • Need to be successful in both

  • Need efficient administrative infrastructure

  • Need effective Quality Assurance systems (Bologna)

  • Need to establish Benchmarks and Performance Indicators

  • Need to have International Collaboration and Research under one administrative unit


WORKING ENVIRONMENT

  • Have to establish competitive advantage in selected niche areas and harness to the full the use of e-technology & culture

  • Have to identify the required IT technology

  • Have to identify the required dexterities of the administrative staff involved, particularly in the International Office as well as the Research Office


GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT

  • Survive in an Aggressive and Competitive Environment

  • Exploit Opportunities - Avoid Threats

  • Enter partnerships with tangible returns

  • Establish local stakeholder support

  • Promote Private/Public Partnerships

  • Ensure international visibility


MOBILITY

Need to:

  • reduce barriers to mobility, particularly for researchers

  • attract third country researchers, particularly in niche areas

  • enter large scale established research projects

  • mobility based on research deliverables and/or learning outcomes (benchmarks-ECTS)


CONCLUSIONS

  • Cannot cover ALL the range of activities

  • Be selective and in areas where you can excel

  • Need to be much better, in a wider range of activities, than corresponding individuals in bigger countries

  • Essential to react proactively to new situations/policies than follow events
