2 EUA Spring Conference 2006 & General Assembly

Dear Colleagues,

welcome to hamburg

In my capacity as the President of the University of Hamburg I have the great pleasure of

extending a particularly warm welcome to you. We feel highly honoured by your presence at

the EUA SPRING CONFERENCE 2006 in Hamburg.

Hamburg, a bustling cosmopolitan port city traditionally committed to liberal mindedness,

tolerance and international cooperation is known as a “gateway to the world”. In the framework

of this tradition the University of Hamburg sees itself as a “gateway to the world of know-

ledge”.

During the development of the European Higher Education Area we as European Universi-

ties are facing new challenges and opportunities to intensify our cooperation with all our

public and private partners committed to support the commonly shared aims of this – finally –

one world of Education, Knowledge and Science.

I particularly welcome the commitment of EUA to involve its members and our partners in

the important discussion which started in Uppsala and is now to be continued during our

conference in Hamburg, conveying the message that a strong Europe needs strong and creative

universities as key players in shaping the European knowledge society.

Dear guests from near and far, I hope that you will enjoy your stay in Hamburg and that our

discussions will result in a significant European contribution to the international world

of knowledge.

Dr. Dr. h.c. Jürgen Lüthje

President, University of Hamburg

introduction to the conference theme programme overview

Following the mandate given by its members at the 3rd Convention of European Higher Education

Institutions held in Glasgow in April 2005, EUA has launched a broad debate on the crucial issue

of the financing of higher education in Europe.

THE GLASGOW DECLARATION underlines that adequate and

sustainable funding is a prerequisite for securing universities’

future and with it, their capacity for promoting cultural, social

and technological innovation. Europe cannot hope to compete

with education and research systems in other parts of the world if

higher education and research budgets are not viewed as an

investment in the future, and urgently increased, bearing in mind

that the EU spends only 1.2% of GDP on universities, whereas

the figure is 2.7 % in the US and 2.6 % in Canada as well as in

South Korea. At the institutional level, the Declaration continues,

universities are committed to improving their governance structures

and leadership competence so as to increase their efficiency and

innovative capacity.

FOR UNIVERSITIES, this means working towards a diversification

of funding sources and models which in turn implies reviewing

institutional strategies on the one hand, and governance and management

systems on the other hand.

THERE SEEMS TO BE a growing consensus that, while the state

must continue to maintain and indeed increase funding, the evident

need for additional investment will also necessitate drawing upon

a variety of private sources of funding to cover the costs of higher

education. The challenge of the coming years will be to find ways

forward that ensure an equitable mix and balance between public

and private sources.

4 EUA Spring Conference 2006 & General Assembly

IN PLENARY SESSIONS, work groups and round tables, the

Conference will address the multiple aspects of innovating university

funding, mainly:

• The impact of tuition fees on access and the need for

student aid schemes;

• The diversification of funding sources and generation

of sustainable revenue streams;

• The institutional requirements for transparency,

accountability and good governance for managing

increasingly diverse funding sources;

• The role of private sector investment and the changing

patterns in University-State relationship.

THE CONFERENCE will aim at producing:

Insight in diverse models of innovative institutional funding;

• Orientation on good practice existing across Europe;

• Vision and practice in terms of governance models and

management systems necessary to develop and sustain a

more diversified institutional funding base.

After the Conference delegates and companions have the opportunity to join a guided tour of Hamburg where they will discover

some of the most interesting highlights of the city and its surroundings. Starting from the University you pass the landmark of

Hamburg, St. Michael`s Church and the Nikolaifleet in the Old City, where the original Port of Hamburg was situated. Then you

enter the magical aura of faraway places still alive in the historic warehouse district called “Speicherstadt”.

Crossing the “Köhlbrandbrücke” you will enjoy a fascinating view over the vast expanse of the harbour from almost 60 metres

high. In possession of a special permit the guide offers you a very special glimpse behind the scenes of Hamburg harbour, including

the high-tech docklands of the new container harbour Altenwerder.

The Airbus is the tangible proof of European cooperation in the areas of Research and Development and of course entrepreneurial

realisation. During the guided tour you will see the Final Assembly Line for Airbus Aircraft A318/319/321 and the new A380 in

Hamburg Finkenwerder. The participants are kindly requested to carry their passports.

Meeting Point: Registration Area, Mainbuilding of the University

HAMBURG KUNSTHALLE, GUIDED MUSEUM TOUR, THURSDAY, 30 MARCH (10.00 – 12.00)

The Hamburg Kunsthalle is one of the few museums in which visitors can view art from the Middle Ages through to the present

day. Founded as a civic rather than a courtly establishment, the Kunsthalle still considers itself primarily an institution for the

citizens and guests of the city of Hamburg. The Kunsthalle is divided into four different sections: the Gallery of Old Masters

(Master Bertram, Master Francke, the Dutch painters); the Gallery of 19th Century Art (C. D. Friedrich, Ph. O. Runge, Menzel);

the Gallery of Classical Modernism (Munch, Kirchner, Klee, Beckmann, Lehmbruck) – and the Gallery of Contemporary Art.

CRUISE ON THE ALSTER LAKE BY STEAM BOAT, THURSDAY, 30 MARCH (14.00 – 16.00)

The Alster lake is in the heart of the green Hanseatic city of Hamburg and defines the city’s image and its lifestyle as a paradise

for sailors, rowers and canoeists. Also around the lake you can see people biking, jogging, rollerblading and walking.

GUIDED WALK WAREHOUSE DISTRICT (SPEICHERSTADT) AND HARBOUR (HAFENCITY), FRIDAY, 31 MARCH (10.00 – 12.15)

The century-old Speicherstadt is located in the Free Port between the Deichtorhallen and Baumwall and is the world's oldest

warehouse complex, built at the turn of the century in red brick, typical of northern Germany, with gabled roofs and small towers,

which are beautifully reflected in the canals they border. This whole ensemble is linked to the HafenCity.Today, as in bygone days,

wares from the world over – coffee, tea, cocoa, spices, tobacco, computers and Oriental rugs – are stacked in these storerooms.

The tour will end at the Town Hall.

HARBOUR TOUR, SATURDAY, 01 APRIL (10.00 – 12.00)

The tour takes you through the different harbour basins to give you a close-up view of giant ships, channels and canals, container

terminals and shipyards. We will go through a lock and also into the canals of the Speicherstadt, the historic warehouse district.

POST-CONFERENCE EXCURSION

(not included in the delegates and companions registration fee)

Meeting-Point: Mainbuilding of the University

TOUR OF LÜBECK, SUNDAY, 02 APRIL (09.00 – 14.30)

Lübeck, Queen of the Hanseatic League, was founded in 1143 as the first “western city on the Baltic coast”. The medieval atmosphere

and historically important cultural sights shape the face of the city and testify to Lübeck’s great past as a Free Imperial and

Hanseatic City. The picturesque oval Old Town, surrounded by water, contains some of Germany’s most important brick Gothic

buildings. The spires of the seven churches have dominated the city skyline ever since the Middle Ages. The Holsten Gate, the

former western gate in the city walls, is known throughout the world and is now the symbol of the city. The Buddenbrookhaus,

home of the grandparents of writers Heinrich and Thomas Mann, is one of many stately merchant houses in the city. Lübeck was

the first old town in the Federal Republic of Germany to be officially designated a cultural heritage site.

The tour includes a guided city walk with lunch and a visit to the Café Niederegger where you are highly recommended to enjoy

the world-famous delicacy “Niederegger Marzipan”, one of the trademarks of the Hanseatic City of Lübeck. The tour bus will leave

the main building of the University at 09.00. Expected return will be 14.30 (at the airport) or 15.00 (at the hotels).

Cost: EUR 50,00 per person
