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 also teaches a master's course in higher education economics. Ben has been involved in several national and international research projects for clients such as the European Commission, the OECD and national ministries - in particular the Netherlands' Ministry of Education. During the period 2012-2016 he supported the Higher Education and Research Review Committee that was overseeing the system of performance contracts for Dutch universities and universities of applied sciences. He was also part of the team that developed U-Multirank - an alternative to the existing global rankings in higher education. Currently, he is doing work on innovation and entrepreneurship in higher education (HEInnovate) and completing a project for the Dutch Education Ministry on alternative funding models for higher education institutions in the Netherlands.
