International Policy: Collaborative Projects

Summer School 2013 - From Principles to Practice: Higher Education Policy and Research Project Management

The 2013 Summer School is co-hosted with the Center for Higher Education Transformation (CHET) and other partners in Cape Town from Jan 20 to Jan 25. The seminar will reflect on two increasingly important but seldom-addressed topics in doctoral education: research project management and policy formation in higher education. The program is research-oriented and the existing projects of the invited professors will serve as examples through which the students will be introduced to challenges and recent changes in the research and policy worlds. NOMA Summer School aims at giving the participants an inside view into the working life of an externally-funded research project and the process of application, planning for outcomes, and possible policy effects.
