Outreach and re-organisation processes within Italian universities

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Following the transformation of both Italian economy and society and the implementation of a major reform, Italian universities are changing. The project aims at investigating both the internal processes of re-organisation of academic governance, units and activities, and the relationship between universities, society and the economic sector, especially at the regional level. The research project will focus on four main activities: a) participation in a national survey on the implementation of the university reform; b) participation in case studies on the internal processes of re-organisation of selected higher education institutions; c) participation in the creation of a national data base on human capital and graduate labour market; d) design and implementation of a survey on academic engagement.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
