Event Information

Centre for Higher Education Studies (CHES)

This webinar will explore a study that examines how institutional barriers arising from policy decisions can influence universities’ level of participation in European research programs.

The research compares the effect of EU funding restrictions following Switzerland’s 2014 reclassification as a 'third country' and the uncertainties resulting from the 2016 Brexit vote in the United Kingdom.
