actionuni has given feedback to the proposed financing scheme within the HFKG. For Universities of Applied Sciences the model 85/15 is prefered unanimously, implying a moderate shift towards giving research a higher importance. Among the members of the universities no clear consent was reached which financing model should be used.
A second feedback was requested regarding the topic of a simplified second accreditation process for universities which have passed a first accreditation without obligations. actionuni suppports the position of the Swiss Accreditation Council to postpone the decision whether and how a simplified accreditation process should be implemented until 2019 when more experience about the new accreditation system has been gathered.
