University administrative processes and procedures have remained largely the same as before, according to a report on the impact of the university law reform. The Universities Act was reformed in 2010.
The main objective of the reform was to strengthen universities’ responsibilities for their own finances, human resources and strategic management activities.
According to the Ministry of Education and Culture, universities have not taken full advantage of their options to more freely direct their own resources in accordance with their own goals. Autonomy has increased to some extent, giving universities some room, but the Ministry strongly controls the financial activities of universities.
In addition, according to the report, universities now have better opportunities to influence their own cost structure, including premises. However, the increased room for economic maneuvering has been limited.
In their own fundraisers, though, universities have the potential to further increase this freedom of movement.
