4th Central European Higher Education Cooperation (CEHEC) Conference

Higher Education in Central and Eastern Europe:

National, Regional and European Trajectories 

April 12-13, 2018
Budapest, Hungary

In 2014, CEHEC launched a new series of annual conferences co-hosted by the Center of International Higher Education Studies (CIHES) at the Corvinus University of Budapest and the Yehuda Elkana Center for Higher Education at Central European University (CEU), in collaboration with partners from the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia. Each conference in this series brings together researchers, policy makers, university leaders and other experts in higher education from Central and Eastern European (CEE) region and from other parts of the world. The main aim is to stimulate scholarly and professional dialogue on current trends and key issues in the region’s higher education, as well as promote enhanced collaboration and experience sharing in higher education and science policies. 

Call for Papers

The call invites papers dedicated to the higher education sector in the CEE region, but relevant contributions from other regions are also welcome, including comparative studies. We expect conceptual, as well as empirical papers. Papers should be submitted in one of the four main areas: 

1)    Management
2)    Funding and governance
3)    Teaching and learning
4)    Research and development
