Building the Knowledge Economy in Europe: New Constellations in European Research and Higher Education Governance

[Book Description]

Building the Knowledge Economy in Europe investigates the integration of emerging knowledge policy domains on the European political agenda, and the dynamics of this in relation to knowledge policies. Professors Meng-Hsuan Chou and Ase Gornitzka bring together leading experts who address the two central pillars of the 'Europe of Knowledge', research and higher education, to reveal the vertical, horizontal and sequential tensions in European knowledge governance This book is the first comparative volume on European research and higher education policies. The chapters cover topics such as the idea of the European Research Area, sustainability of the Bologna Process, institution-building for a Europe of Knowledge, domestic impact of EU-level initiatives, and the role of the crisis in the European Higher Education Area. It accounts for the creation of key institutions administering EU funding and addresses the core issues of European integration in the knowledge domains. This thought provoking book will engage academic readers interested in European integration analysed from general political science, administrative science, organization theory perspectives as well as in higher education and science studies. National policymakers, European policymakers and practitioners will also find much policy-relevant content, particularly because the European Research Area is formally scheduled to be completed by 2014.
