Welcome
The CHE is a think tank for higher education. Based on international comparisons, we develop models for the modernisation of higher education systems and institutions. These models we define in close dialogue with decision makers from the higher education sector and politics. We undertake research on higher education and develop political scenarios. Our activities aim at the realisation and testing of new models in terms of steering and controlling as well as organisational models. On the basis of thus gained experience, we assist in further developing these models by carrying out pilot projects and by critically accompanying reform measures.
