Despite the fact that universities are at the centre of knowledge creation and development, which itself is seen as one of the main engines of economic growth, public funding of higher education in most countries is not increasing or at least not increasing enough in real terms. This volume explores new funding schemes and incentives introduced in many European higher education systems, including competitive funding schemes for research under the name of
"excellence" policies.
