Integrated University Management System:
Borrowing the European experience of the partner countries (INURE)
The project is aimed first and foremost to adapt modern European methods of university management in the EU and is based on using the latest computer technology and management. There will also be developed and implemented new generation of software for the management of the university on the basis of analyzing and processing the information flows, adapted to the management systems in partner universities.
Project name: 530181-TEMPUS-1-2012-1-DE-TEMPUS-SMGR
Project duration: 15.10.2012 - 15.10.2014.
Coordinator: University of Koblenz-Landau (Germany)
About the project: The problems of the education systems of Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova and Georgia for the recent transition period are quite similar. Although the problems are not academic in nature, they do have a negative impact on the outcomes and outputs of the latter. The main difficulties refer to absence of economic sustainability in the new political, economic, and social paradigm. Yet another problem is the absence of market-oriented university management, the Soviet legacy former soviet countries are still fighting to overcome. As a result, there is a lack of practical experience in organization of university functioning under the given conditions. Therefore, adopting the EU experience will both bridge this gap and create comparability with the EU standards, former soviet countries are striving for.
The broad objective of the project is to develop and implement a complex integrated information management system at the universities of Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova and Georgia, based on European experience and on the PC Universities ground. Specific objectives address adaptation to PCs’ conditions of EU experience and practices on design and use of integrated information management system, development of guidance on the principles and practices of construction and effective use of integrated information management system. Moreover, it will address the design and integration of new software for university management on the base of information flow analysis and existing University Management systems in Partner universities.
The objectives will be met through forming a new style of managerial information flows; elaborating necessary software; creating the infrastructure; and teaching university administrators to use this infrastructure. Especially the modern style of university management in EU is connected with use of new computer and managerial technologies.
