Thursday, April 18th, 2013

Instituto Superior Técnico – IST, is involved as partner in a project in the field of  Strategic Management at the level of higher education institutions, entitled Strategic University Management: Unfolding Practices – SUMUP.

As part of the project, and with the purpose of promoting Good Practices in this area, through the collection and dissemination of successful initiatives, the European Observatory on Good Practices in University Strategic Management – EUSUM, was created.

A call for proposals on Good Practices in Strategic management is open until the end of May, which are related to:

• Financial Sustainability

• Social and Environmental Responsibility

• Human Resources

• Recognition and Reputation

• Quality Management

• Infrastructure and Equipment

• Internationalization

• Regional Involvement

At the end of the process, an international expert team will evaluate the proposals and validate those that meet the previosuly set criteria.  The Good Practices selected will be recognized and disseminated publicly based on the data provided by the abovementioned Observatory, and some of them may be presented by the respective proposing institutions by invitation of the project organization at an International Conference to be held in Barcelona, in September 2013.

The submission is simple, through a short summary of the Good Practice in an online  form. Further information on the project and evaluation criteria of the Good Practices may be obtained at the Observatory webpage.
