Final seminar in a series of four in the House of Commons, hosted jointly by HEPI and JISC.
As the financial situation that universities face looks increasingly likely to be difficult, it is all the more important that the money that is available is spent well and effectively. This is important for the good functioning of universities themselves, but it is also politically important, as politicians seek to justify the contributions made by taxpayers – and students. This seminar took a wide-ranging view of these questions, considering among other things how universities could do things differently to increase the effectiveness of what they do in straitened circumstances.
A transcript of the main speeches is available, along with Carl Lygo’s slides.
