The aim of this study is to give an overview of the ways in which human resources are managed in public higher education institutions in the Tempus Partner Countries. It is based on a survey addressed to individuals involved in Tempus projects and on information gathered at the level of the national authorities. In all the countries covered by the study, human resource management and staff development are becoming issues which require more and more attention on the part of individual institutions as well as from the national authorities. There is a need to recruit and retain highly skilled and motivated staff in order to make modernisation of higher education a reality. While more attention is often being paid to the working conditions of academic staff, it is slowly becoming obvious that administrative and technical staff also needs to be taken better into consideration, in order to ensure their commitment and contribution to the development of higher education institutions. In general, it can be noted that the importance of human resource management is recognised in the Tempus Partner Countries, but only a few of them have developed national strategies which would concretely support higher education institutions and give them guidelines. However, some successful national schemes are presented in the study and can serve as examples of good practice in managing human resource issues. The conclusions at the end of the report also include recommendations for the development of human resources in the countries concerned. Appended are: (1) Brief overview of the Tempus programme; (2) The national questionnaire (addressed to National Tempus Offices); (3) The on-line questionnaire (addressed to individuals); and (4) Overview tables of responses collected through the national questionnaires. (Contains 15 charts, 9 maps, 9 tables and 56 footnotes.)
