The need on the labour market is high. The universities of applied sciences can alleviate some of this need, but they are shrinking; students are increasingly opting for university education. Meanwhile, universities are suffering from the increased student numbers and their identity as research universities is under threat; they are increasingly offering vocational programmes. What course should be taken before the tide comes in? This is what a new committee of the Netherlands Association of Universities of Applied Sciences, consisting of Ron Bormans (Chairman of the Board of Governors of Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences) and eight professors, is going to investigate.
Caradt professor Sebastian Olma is one of the members of this committee
