Through Academic Cooperation Towards Innovtive Capacity
Start date: Oct 15, 2015, End date: Oct 14, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project focused on the training and building up the capacity of management and governance in order to improve the higher education sector in the involved countries so that it can face the new challenges brought by globalization and the knowledge society. The aim is not only to increase higher education quality and accountability, but also to close the gap with developed and emerging countries. This challenge needs creative and innovative approaches to higher education institutions but also highly motivated, trained and dedicated managers at HEIs. The general objective of the project is to to contribute to the modernization and reform of the management system within HEIs in three Asian countries (MN, VT, CB) and to strengthen the competencies of top and middle managers of these institutions. More specifically, the project aims at introducing Information Management Systems (IMS), upskilling human resource (HR) and financial management staff and facilitating administration and student enrolment processes. Likewise, the project will establish project management offices as an approach to change management through a strategy that addresses the unique challenges of each HEI.The project redefines effective change leadership and management for HEIs where it requires leaders who can facilitate a complex process of transformation – not only in the core higher education activities of learning and teaching, research and engagement but also in how the university operates, in its culture, governance, structure and how it positions itself and supports staff and students. The project will serve as a reference in the country for inclusive leadership education . The project helps to integrate the efforts of a wide variety of players at every level from academia, operations and administration, and help reshape unsupportive or unaligned systems, structures, funding mechanisms, leadership roles and performance indicators.
