Research

Ben Jongbloed is a senior research associate in the Center for Higher Education Policy Studies (CHEPS) of the University of Twente in the Netherlands. His research focuses on issues of governance and resource allocation in higher education. He has published widely on these issues and, in early 2016, edited a book (published by Routledge) on access and expansion in higher education. Ben has been involved in several national and international research projects for clients such as the European Commission and national ministries. His recent work is on performance agreements in higher education, university rankings (U-Multirank) and entrepreneurship in higher education (HEInnovate). During the period 2012-2016 he supported the Higher Education and Research Review Committee (chaired by Frans van Vught) that was overseeing the system of performance contracts for Dutch universities and universities of applied sciences.
