Network university cooperation: tool, challenge or chance?
The presentation paper examines the concept of Network University Cooperation (NUC) as 3-dimensional “tool-challenge-chance” system, aimed at realization of university mission. It is considered: as a tool for joint study programmes/research projects development and delivering; as a challenge for internal university environment and external regulations; as a chance to change the academic policy, university governance and external institutional arrangements. The opportunities of higher education internationalization by means of network university cooperation are considered as well.
