Practitioner Cooperation

Hamburg University is currently implementing a new science infomation system. Next to personnel data, information on research grants, collaborative projects, publications, or patents will be systematically gathered and provided in one integrated system. Since both our research projects are concerned with the coordination of research collaborations and the analysis of potential, latent, and invisible collaboration networks (Invisible Colleges), we thought it would be a great idea to consult the project steering committee and see if we may contribute to the project. As expected, both sides had a lot of interesting and novel ideas to exchange. We’re very excited to be part of the project and, thus, will further intensify our cooperation.

CfP: 2nd Workshop in Strategic Change and Organizational Transformation of Higher Education Institutions

Our Workshop at the Leuphana University of Lüneburg in November 2013 has been a great success. Several participants asked if the event will going to be annually repeated. Before we had the chance to further think about that idea, our colleague Elena Druica proposed to organize a follow-up event at the university of Bucharest.

We are happy to invite you to submit a proposal or to participate in the “2nd Workshop in Strategic Change and Organizational Transformation of Higher Education Institutions” at the University of Bucharest conjointly organized by Prof. Elena Druica (University of Bucharest) and Prof. Markus Reihlen (University of Lüneburg).

Deadline for the submissions of abstracts: March 31, 2014

Workshop Date and Venue: June 20, 2014 – University of Bucharest
